Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
What other assets and debts are there and what income do you each have?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi my wife is on 12k and I am on 34k the assets are what ever in the house and I have said she can take what ever she needs
I have also said she can have the pension but she has said no our account is £1200 over drawn which I said I will clear and I am paying for the divorce ,hence why I am overdrawn we both have cars which are all paid for
Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
HI
How much is your pension worth?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
At the moment down to 25k
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It a frozen one from when I left my last job at the moment I do not have one waiting until divorce done and any money left may consider the 60 k will come from taking a additional mortgage of £60k on top the £100k which we have and will changed to me when is done hope it helps
Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
Sorry is that the Cash Equivalent Transfer Value?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
£23k
Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
In that case a 60/40 split of the equity in full and final settlement of all claims is not an unreasonable outcome - and is one that the court might well impose.
I would expect any spouse maintenance claim to be dismissed as well.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
