Whilst the new normal is to dumb down family law to online portals and flat-pack precedents there is no quick fix for pension sharing. Pensions can be one of the most valuable assets in a long marriage but they are often overlooked because of a lack of understanding about how they may be shared. Although they are a contingent asset for most, in divorce proceedings they can be shared out fairly for the future. It's often women who have sacrificed valuable pension years taking time out to have children who are disadvantaged by this oversight. Fast forward to your 60s after you get divorced and see what's missing. Make sure you give this some thought now.
