For many couples who are going through a divorce, the pension may be the 2nd biggest asset after the family home.
It’s therefore vital that professional advice is taken as to what options are available for the pensions and which option is the most appropriate for you, your circumstances and your goals and priorities.
I was delighted to be asked by Soila Sindiyo to take part in some teleseminars discussing the financial implications of divorce.
Soila works with those going through a divorce to ensure they can deal with the emotional pain, and challenges present at this stage in their lives, and help them move forward.
She can provide family mediation to ensure you can agree of the financial settlement and all matters relating to your children with no pain or acrimony.
In this first teleseminar I discuss with Soila the issues around pensions and divorce and answer the following questions:
What options are available when dealing with pensions in divorce?
Are pensions automatically taken into consideration during a divorce?
Can a family mediator help a couple make decisions on how to deal with pension matters or does it have to be done by solicitors?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of the different options in dealing with pensions on divorce?
