A guide to the treatment of pensions on divorce

The Pension Advisory Group has produced a very detailed and in depth guide to pensions and divorce aimed at family judges, lawyers and pensions experts. The objective is to improve understanding and ensure fairer outcomes. Although lengthy, it contains a wealth of useful information.

A Nuffield Foundation funded study found there was a lack of confidence amongst practitioners on the issue of pensions and divorce.  Of 369 court files they studied, 80% had at least one relevant pension yet only 14% contained a pension sharing order. Offsetting remained the most common way of dealing with pensions but they found little consistency or agreement on how they should be valued.
