Hi Steve – thanks for getting in touch. If you are negotiating with your wife then it would be reasonable to ring-fence out the amount of pension accrued prior to the marriage. A court will however look at the overall respective positions for both you and your wife. So, for example, what pension she will be left with, what other asset she has. You will need a full disclosure of each other’s assets in order to get advice on what’s reasonable overall. You can book a one hour divorce coaching session with amicable to receive advice about your personal situation.
