Solicitors in Essex & London
Our team of specialist divorce lawyers are recognised in Tier 1 of Legal 500 UK. Our family law team includes members of the Law Society’s Family Panel, accredited Resolution specialists and Collaborative Family Lawyers. They have particular expertise in cases involving the division of pension assets.
Pensions accumulated by either party to the marriage are an asset of the marriage, whether held by the husband or wife.
The court will deal with the division of pension assets, applying the same principles that apply when dividing capital assets. However, due to the unique nature of pensions, expert advice may be required from a pension actuary as money held in a pension is not dealt with in the same way as other financial assets. Our divorce law solicitors can advise you further on the implications on your pensions during the divorce procedure.
An offsetting, earmarking or pension sharing order may be appropriate. Clients often need input from an Independent Financial Advisor at an early stage and our family solicitors are able to recommend advisors whom we work with regularly to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your family.
Finalising finances and pensions upon divorce can be a complicated task but our specialist team of Tier 1 Legal 500 family lawyer will discuss your options during a free 30-minute initial consultation*. Our experienced team will provide you with some advice on pension orders and the options available to you.
*Free consultations with our family solicitors are only available at our main Essex offices in Brentwood, Hornchurch and Upminster and are not available in cases where proceedings have been issued. Fixed fee appointments are available at Canary Wharf (London) and Leigh-on-Sea (Essex).
