Here is some more info. We married in Mar 78 and I filed in Aug 99. After a protracted divorce the marital home was sold in July 2001.
At this time my ex received £38403.00 and I received £100,000.00.
He retained his pension and when he took his pension in Aug 2009 he started payments.
From Aug 2009 till June 2011 he paid £418.62 / month.
July 2011till May2012 £428.22/ month
June 2012 till Mar 2013 £459.50/month
Apr 2014 till Nov 2014 £465.02/month
I have not received Dec payment.
My ex has never provided any proof of exactly when he drew his pension or how much he actually receives this has been taken on trust
Did I mention that when my ex drew his pension he retained the lump sum and pays half the monthly income.
On searching Court order I also found a document dated 14 Mar 2000 from Teachers' Pension it states that as of 31 Mar 1999 the value of the pension fund was £129156.52.At this time it was estimated at the age of 60 he would receive a pension of £8653.34 and a lump sum of £25960.02 (this was probably larger as the percentage that could be taken as a lump sum increased a few years later).
Now to the actual consent order as I don't have a scanner I will just give the relevant paragraphs but if you need more I can arrange to get a scan.
The "Teachers' Pension Scheme" shall mean the Teachers' Pension payable to the respondent under the Teachers' Pension Scheme together with any Additional Voluntary Contribution (AVC)to which the respondent shall be entitled.
AND UPON the respondent undertaking to the Court that he will give two months notice in writing of his intention to retire to the Petitioner. -- He did not do this
AND UPON the Respondent undertaking to the Court that this clause shall still apply even in the event of the Petitioner's remarriage the Respondent further undertakes that after retaining the maximum lump sum payable upon his retirement in respect of his Teachers' Pension Scheme that he will pay or cause to paid one half of the annuity which he obtains from the remaining Teachers' Pension and any AVC's to the petitioner during their joint lives or until further Order.
Hope this is what you need I have every document relating to the divorce so should be able to answer most questions.
I attach a copy of the entire court order.
One last question if he defaults is there any way I can recover the debt as a lump sum to pay of the outstanding debt?
If aloud there is another point I need to clarify.
The court order says I should receive half the income from his pension should this be before tax as obviously the amount he receives depends on his tax situation?
