I am the petitioner.
If I have the decree nisi made absolute before a settlement is reached, will that effect my settlement or my ability to negotiate one?
(Thank you for your help so far, it has been most helpful and invaluable to me).
No. We have pensions that are of equal value. However, my pensions have been frozen due to insolvency. She claims that I have not disclosed my pension honestly, as she is aware that I had a pension with kingfisher prior to meeting her, that I had forgotten about. My solicitor (I no longer have) has since confirmed that my kingfisher pension had been overlooked for this reason and the value is minimal. It is only worth £1223.00. I have no interest in her pension or savings. I jointly own the house, but my share is due to the receivers. I have requested a clean break.
That is wonderful news. Thank you.
I assume all I need to do is complete a D36 and return it. Will I need to send any additional information?
Also, will she still be able to claim against my pension after the decree absolute? Do I need to then apply for a final consent order?
(Sorry, but my solicitor was dealing with all this, but she has left the firm and I can no longer afford to instruct another solicitor).
Thank you again for your help
So my understanding of this is that if I want to claim against her pension (only to counteract if she claims against mine) I can only do this before the decree absolute?
