Yes, a pension sharing order was made. She received half the lump sum and half the payment. She is claiming that she has no other source of income and to draw her pension now, at 55 instead of 60 (it is an NHS pension payable at 60) would reduce it too much.
The final order was for periodical payments until 6 months after I gave notice of intention to retire after which no further claims could be made, but thatapplication to extend could be made before. I gave notice 8 months ago and retired 2 months ago. She made the application 4 months after I gave notice
She is 55. She used to be a nurse but has refused to work for the last 25 years. There is no reason she cannot work. She just won't.
£1900 per month
At present, none. She has only declared her periodical payments which were 5400 a month until last month
They were £5400 per month
One would have thought so given there was always going to be a gap.
