Divorce can be a difficult and emotional process, made even more complicated when it comes to dividing assets such as pensions. Barclay Devere Family Mediation is here to help ease that burden and guide you through the process of dividing pensions after divorce.
Barclay Devere Family Mediation is a trusted name in family mediation, with years of experience in helping families across Chichester navigate the complexities of divorce. Our team of experts understands that dividing assets is rarely a simple task, particularly when it comes to pensions. That’s why we offer tailored mediation services to help couples come to a mutually acceptable agreement on how to divide their assets.
Dividing assets after divorce is never easy, particularly when it comes to pensions. Pensions can be one of the most valuable assets a couple owns, and it’s important to ensure that those assets are divided fairly. After all, a pension is meant to provide financial security in retirement, and it’s crucial that both parties receive their fair share.
At Barclay Devere Family Mediation, we offer a range of services designed to help couples divide their pensions after divorce. Our expert mediators understand the complexities of pension division, and will work with you and your partner to find a solution that works for both of you.
During mediation sessions, our team will work with you and your partner to identify all your assets, including pensions. We’ll then help you understand the full value of those pensions, and work towards an agreement that provides a fair distribution of those assets.
Pension Sharing Orders
Once you and your partner have reached an agreement on dividing your pensions, it’s important to formalize that agreement. Our team can help you create a Pension Sharing Order, which sets out how your pensions will be divided. This order is then approved by the courts, and provides legal protection for both parties.
If dividing your pensions equally is not feasible, our team can also help you explore the option of pension offsetting. This involves trading off one asset, such as a house or savings, in exchange for a larger share of a pension.
Pension Attachment Orders
Another option for dividing pensions after divorce is the use of a Pension Attachment Order. This involves assigning a portion of the pension income to the other partner, but not the ownership of the pension itself. This option can be useful in situations where a couple has not built up equal pensions, and one partner requires additional financial support.
At Barclay Devere Family Mediation Chichester, we understand that every couple is unique, and that there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to dividing pensions after divorce. That’s why we offer tailored services designed to meet the specific needs of each couple.
Our mediation sessions are confidential and aimed at helping both parties reach a mutually acceptable agreement. Our team will help you explore all the available options, and ensure that you have a clear understanding of the implications of each option.
