Pensions on Divorce book coverFor separating spouses and civil partners, pensions are often a vital consideration. They may be the most valuable potential asset that a family has. It is imperative, therefore, that the family lawyer, advising a client on divorce or family breakdown, deals properly with the consequent pension problems and opportunities. But pension schemes are not designed to cope with family breakdown, and pension legislation and industry practice are fraught with complexity.

In this important new title, three of the country’s leading experts combine their wealth of knowledge and experience to provide family lawyers with everything they need to handle the pension aspects of family breakdown. Covering the law, practice and procedure relevant to everyday and more unusual cases, this immensely practical work will become the essential handbook for all practitioners advising couples on divorce, nullity, judicial separation or dissolution of a civil partnership.

The text is fully up to date and supplemented by a score of invaluable precedents, together with all the relevant legislation and guidance.
