‘A third of married couples do not know about pension sharing on divorce’

Research undertaken by Shoosmiths in October revealed that a third of married couples and those in civil partnerships do not know that on divorce or dissolution they are entitled to a proportion of their spouse's or partner's pension.

According to Shoosmiths Family Law team, "one in five couples surveyed had no idea what to expect when it comes to divorce, but with the gender inequality amongst pensions, it is clear that women (especially those whose relationship has ended after taking a career break to start a family) are at a huge disadvantage when it comes to their long-term financial security".
