I am retired and have 2 pensions from my job that totals £1190 a month. My wife is still working but only one day a week and I have no idea how much she gets. She also gets her state pension and a small pension which isn't much.
We sold the house and that was halved, I gave her half of my lump sum when I got my pension and give her £250 per month even though I believe I do not have to.
We have been separated for 2 years and I want a divorce so I can marry my new partner. My wife wants assurances I will keep up payments if we divorce and some of my state pension which I will qualify for next february. Not sure of what is the best step.
I am 64 and my partner is 52. I am unsure of her income but she has child credit and works 15 hours a week at the national wage. She is a carer for her mother and gets carers benefits.
One pension is worth £2500 and the other £12000
18 and still at college
No he's my partners son, she is divorcing her husband so we can be together
Wages for one day a week at coventry university, state pension and a few pounds per month in a pension but I am not sure too much
I already pay her £250 per month on a voluntary basis, would the small pension be on top of that or can I stop the £250 payment?
You say change the pension by consent order, what does that entail please and will it cost.
sadly a few more questions, your help is greatly appreciated.
As I say I give her £250 a month voluntary, I believe this is not compulsary ? and if she asked for for I don't have to, is that right ?
You can only get a consent order or financial order if you have applied for a decree nisi, is that correct.
And my partner and I have bought a house together, as I am separated does my wife have any claim on my part of the house ?
many thanks again
Brilliant, thank for your help
