    Default Pensions and divorce

    Hi, things are not looking to good at home wife moving out divorce has not been mention BUT
    I need a bit of advice
    I have been paying pension for 34yrs and been married for nearly 6 yr is she entitled to any of my pension if so how much

    Also the mortgage has only resently been put in joint names 4months just bought out the ex wife out . So she has technically only been on mortgage for 4 months ex wife was on it up untill then

    So bacically since been married to thai wife she has never contributed to the house hold bills
    Before the buy out and after 4 months

    Thanks for any help

    I am involved in pensions. I don't think that there is any automatic entitlement to any of the pension in these situations, but for some years now pensions can be shared on divorce. It is part of the divorce settlement, rather than an automatic thing. If the wife does not have a large entitlement because of the length of the marriage, no children, little contribution to the marriage etc then the pension would not normally be part of the equation.

    I agree Linne.

    I have no experience of divorce (yet! ) but I think its probably just as complex as dealing with the UKBA!

    These may be a good starting point for a little research:-

    I think the best advice he's had is to do all he can to get divorced in Thailand.

    Sorry for the delay.

    A wife does not automatically get part of her husband's pension on divorce. It is just another asset that is part of the equation.

    hi Big AL would wife's house and land in Thailand be taken into the equation?

    Yes. It is an asset that belongs to her.

    Well don't mention it at the moment, don't give her the opportunity to 'transfer' it until the coast is clear. I'm pretty sure you can get a copy of the title from the local Land Office - this will show the ownership. Take a Thai speaker with you though or you'll be there for months!!

    Air ticket to Thailand - £500

    Payout on divorce - £potentially massive!

    Aske her to prove a negative - that the land isn't hers, in the same way she would be expected to prove it is hers - with legal documents.

    I am quite certain that you can't use the same solicitor, but I believe that it isn't necessary for both parties to have representation. It may sound a bit risky to not have one but if the divorce is uncontested, everything is agreed, and neither party are going to let a solicitor alter that agreement, then it is possible to have only one solicitor involved.
    As for reason, desertion is not an option so guess it is down to unreasonable behaviour or adultery
