Pension lawyers and experts are rarely used to family law; family law-yers equally unlikely to keep abreast of pensions law.
The new edition of this book provides both with what they need to handle their case.
When a husband and wife decide to divorce it is frequently the case that one of them will own valuable pension rights and the other will not, or will own such rights of a smaller value. The interests of fairness may justify court intervention to redistribute these rights or make some other provision as compensation. This book attempts to explain and explore in an accessible fashion:

  • What powers the court has to intervene and redistribute these rights?
  • What are the procedural mechanisms which the court will follow in car-rying out this intervention and redistribution?
  • In what circumstances will the court consider it appropriate to inter-vene and redistribute these rights or make some other compensatory provision?
  • What actuarial issues may arise from such considerations?
    Completely updated to cover new legislation, and with extensive notes on current regulations, this work also includes all of the standard forms re-quired as well as a comprehensive series of tables and ready-reckoners to assist the reader in determining the best course for their clients.
