hi i left my hubby in sept through breakdown of the marriage we were 26 years married and i stated that i wanted half the money for the contents of the house to start on my own its wasnt a baught house since then he has left the house with all the contents. but iv since learnt he is playing a part in buying his mum and dads house i know im entitled to some of his pension but where do i stand financialy
First of all you are quite right to say that you have some entitlement to your husband's assets including his pension.
It's important to say that all financial matters on marriage breakdown are different and even when I see client's in my office it is very difficult to give them a comprehensive answer to what they might be entitled to or receive from a financial settlement.
In order to ensure that you are not mislead in any way I would advise that you seek local legal advice so that you are able to fully explain your circumstances and show them any paperwork that you might have regarding your financial position.
I hope this is of some help in pointing you in the right direction and all the best
