Your questions answered

Kay Levene, Partner, Family Law
  • Why should I consider a pension during divorce?
    Pensions are valuable assets that can significantly impact your financial stability and future quality of life. It's crucial to consider them when dividing assets during a divorce.
  • Can I overlook my spouse's pension in the settlement?
    No, the court expects pension policies to be treated like any other asset. Proper consideration and fair sharing of pension funds are essential for a balanced financial settlement.
  • What are the different types of pension policies?
    Pension policies vary in terms of income levels, flexibility, lump sum payments, and what happens to the fund upon death. Expert advice is crucial for understanding and assessing these differences.
  • How can an experienced solicitor help with financial settlements?
    An experienced solicitor can provide guidance and balance in dividing assets and pension funds, ensuring a fair and practical financial settlement that meets the needs of both parties.
  • Are pensions often overlooked in financial settlements?
    Yes, many people fail to include pensions in their financial settlements, leading to disparities in financial positions. Seeking legal advice ensures all assets are properly considered.
  • What are Pension Sharing Orders?
    Pension Sharing Orders allow for the transfer of a percentage of one party's pension to the other during a divorce. It ensures a fair division of pension assets.
  • Why should I seek professional legal advice for financial settlements?
    Professional legal advice is crucial to ensure all assets, including pensions, are considered and taken into account during the financial settlement process.
  • How can I contact HK Law for financial settlement advice?
