Tracing your ex`s pension when divorcing

Tracing your ex`s pension when divorcing has just been made easier thanks to a new website set up by the Government and Northwich solicitors Stonehewer Moss are experienced at seeking freezing order called section 37 orders in divorce if you suspect your ex is about to take out money from a pension with the intention of defeating your claim in divorce. Michael Brennan is an accredited specialist solicitor at Stonehewer Moss including acknowledgment from Resolution and the Law Society for complex financial asset cases. Michael believes the new website will be a boon for divorcing spouses as he will ask your ex to complete the simple on line search and provide the results. Pensions are usually the largest asset in a divorce and the liberalisation of pension access for those over 55 means you must know what is available for distribution and freeze assets when there is a risk of disposal. Michael says, ” A middling pension fund of say £50,000 value used to be disregarded altogether by some judges, but now it can be factored in like a bank account that may really make a difference when negotiating settlement. I would certainly seek to freeze an asset of that size or even somewhat less and the new search facility is unanswerable by a spouse showing signs of reluctance to disclose. The site is at https://www.gov.uk/find-pension-contact-details  , but you do need authority to search for another person.” Tracing your ex`s pension when divorcing has become easier in Cheshire and you need to be alert to potential disposal of assets.
