Sharing Pensions in Scotland
Pensions are usually one of the most valuable matrimonial assets, and they also tend to be the most complex when it comes to calculating and agreeing how a pension should be shared when a marriage or civil partnership comes to an end. We have vast experience in this area and draw on the expertise of pensions specialists to provide accurate advice that protects our clients’ interests.
Pensions are usually shared in two ways, either by an order of the court or through a separation agreement. Before the order is sought or the agreement finalised, the value of the pension will need to be determined. Amongst other things, this means getting in touch with the trustees of the pension fund and exchanging information. The pension share will only take effect once certain formalities have been complied with and the divorce or dissolution has been granted.
