The starting point for a medium to long term marriage is 50/50, with the court being able to adjust according to the parties' needs and the factors as listed in s25of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973. If you google this legislation you will be able to read the full list of factors the court takes into consideration.
The finances will only be settled by a court once the decree nisi is pronounced, and will not take effect until the decree absolute is pronounced. You may have to attend mediation before either of you can apply to court for the finances.
The finances will include any assets accrued during the marriage, including pensions.
