Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

Expert:  Debra replied 12 months ago.

No it is not the least bit true.

His pensions are assets are will be treated the same as any other asset.

Support is not dependent on assets and if he has been supporting you throughout the marriage you will be entitled to spousal support going forward. How long and how much depends on many factors including what is income is, how long you've been married or cohabiting for, your age, etc.

Does that help as a starting point?
