Hi, thank you for your question. Was your financial settlement recorded in a court order that was approved by the court, if so please can you attach the order using the paperclip icon?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there is no court order in place for this it was completed by a company called cotton mediation we attended sessions to mediate the settlement I signed a piece of paper and so did she as part of the mediation agreement

That is not a legally binding financial settlement in divorces. For pension sharing there must be s court order that details the share of pension and this is submitted to your pension company and the relevant share ideas transferred to her.

I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
