Hi, thank you for your question. Are they in England or Wales?
Thanks. Most private and work place pensions have provision for the pension to automatically transfer to a spouse and there is no written agreement required for this. Has your father checked his policy to ensure that she is covered?

Not to worry - this will not be a further charge. In order to have a formal maintenance payment to your mother from his pension they will either need to come to an agreement and have that drafted into a consent order alongside a divorce or she will need to pursue a court application for a financial settlement. Without a court approved order he can stop making payments and she will not have any options to enforce any payments from him.
