Pensions – are we in denial?

Date:8 FEB 2017
Third slide
Pension expert

The article explores whether there is a reluctance on the part of the profession and/or the judiciary to provide better guidance for court users and the judiciary themselves on the way pensions should be treated on a divorce settlement.

It explores whether the Family Justice Council ‘Guidance on Financial Needs on Divorce’ was a missed opportunity and touches on the need to acknowledge the very different considerations that arise when dealing with defined benefit as opposed to defined contribution pensions.

It also considers why pensions have become and will continue to be so important in divorce.
