Divorce

Divorce

There are 3 main ways to deal with the apportionment of a pension if a marriage breaks down.

Offsetting

This is where the non-pension owning spouse will receive non pension related assets

Earmarking

Here the non-owning spouse receives a proportion of the pension at crystallisation.

Sharing

Basically the pension is split at an agreed percentage each, for each to invest as they wish within pension rules

The value of pensions and the income they produce can fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you invested.
