PENSION relief brief

I have just received issue 8 of their PENSION relief brief from Bradshaw Dixon Moore. Dealing with the turmoil caused by the recent change in the measure of inflation used by State and statutory pensions from the Retail Prices Index (RPI) to the Consumer Prices Index (CPI), the brief makes important reading for all dealing with pensions and divorce.

  1. Hi John,
    This affects me. I've been separated 2 and a half years, nisi just been granted. Judge refused divorce 5 times as disagreed with date we separated. Consent order has been filled in but I can't get my CETV from Teachers pensions. I've been advised it could take another year. We separated after a 2 and a half yr marriage. Is there anything I can do to speed things up? I'm having to 'crash' at a friend's house until I am 'free' to purchase a property as there is nothing to rent where I am.

    1. Sorry, but I can't give advice. I suggest you consult a specialist solicitor - you can find a local one here. Alternatively, you could try your union.
