Hello

Welcome to Just Answer

I am a Solicitor and will assist you.

Please may I ask:

- how long were you married?

- were there any assets to the marriage?

- any minor children?

- do you mean that you only started to contribute toyour pension after you separated?

- what is the value of your pension and the equity in your house and any other assets that you may have?

- do you know if your ex has any assets?

- do you support him or does he support himself?

kind regards

Caroline
