A friend of ours 80yr man who married 20 yrs ago when he was

Customer Question

a friend of ours 80yr man who married 20 yrs ago when he was on pension (2 yrs ) a woman who is now 60 and she had 2 small children,. he brought them up as his own, paid until recently for all their education including Higher educ. She worked approx. 2 yrs max in their marriage. they have no house, rent only and she is now filing for divorce and about half his substantial pension. we are concerned that she has been investigating this for some time and is now proceeding to go to court. he just seems to want to get it out of the way and from reading some of the internet info it looks like he may pay over much more than he should. It would be helpful to know if possible if he is really obliged to pay her half his pension and apart from a lawyer should he see an accountant or a financial advisor . it is concerning as we think she is totally taking him for a ride. thanks

Hi, thanks for your question.
Is the divorce / financial application being pursued in England? If it is, it will be hard for her to argue for a pension sharing order as the pension was fully accumulated before the marriage and should not be considered a matrimonial asset.
Please let me know if you have any further questions regarding this.

this was most helpful and will be passed to our friend. the wife is sueing for the divorce in France and it would seem that she may have been advised that this could be advantageous to her in the circumstances. But having to hand over a major portion of something that she has never contributed to, indeed has sat back and lived in luxury on the benefits, would seem to be very unfair to our friend.
