Properties acquired before marriage are not usually taken into account as matrimonial assets unless the title has been changed to joint names or unless the non entitled party has contributed financially to them. As regards ***** ***** value of the pension accrued during the marriage falls to be shared between the parties. Ther is a formula applied which basically takes the value accrued since the pension was started to the present day and then works out the value to be taken account as being during the marriage. A "capital equivalent transfer value" has to be obtained from the pension company. Happy to discuss further. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
