Customer Question

I am about to get divorced folowing three years of marriage. My wife and I both work in the NHS but she earns more than I and will recieve a bigger pension. I am 53yrs old she is 40yrs old so I will be receiving my pension earlier. Will I need to share this pension with her?

What are your marital assets?
Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi
Thank you for your question
How long have you actually lived together?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Prior to the marriage both my wife and I had properties. As we wanted to keep the properties in the event of a divorce we took out a pre marital contract stating that in the event of a divorce we would both keep our properties. My wife has subsequently sold her property and has the equity in her bank account to which I have no access. We currently both live in my property which I acquired 12yrs prior to the marriage.


Thank you


Peter

We lived in my home for one year prior to marriage and three years married. My wife has now moved out

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Four years in total three of them since we married. During this period my wife rented out her property. I had no access to any of this rented income.
