no assets are held in joint names and a settlement of £20,000 was paid as her equal share in the equity of the marital home. She is now asking for a further £10,000 as final settlement. My solicitor at the time has now merged with 2 other firms and no longer has any documents regarding this matter but his opinion is the equity share was the final settlement, she refutes this and says for 10k she will forego any pension claim but the pension is very minimal and wouldn't add up to this amount if she is entitled to any at all.
An online forum solicitor suggested that 6years after the decree absolute the case would be stuck out as it mirrors Vince v Wyatt 2013 due to barred time of almost 20 years.
She says she remember the marriage assets comprising of the former matrimonial home and my pension! but proposes that if i pay her £10k lump sum in exchange any claim on my pension she will regard this a final settlement. As i said my old solicitor and myself have no paperwork of what she claims to remember and i have asked her solicitor to provide any such papers which have yet to turn up!! This pension is minimal, I have already taken 25% totalling approx £6,500 and only adds up to £26,000 which gives me approx £600 per annum.
Sorry in short yes but if i pay her 10k she will forego any pension claim
Thank you for you advice
