Disability and Divorce
Hi. I am divorcing my husband who became very bitter and abusive towards me when my disability meant I could no longer work. We are currently going through mediation and he is asking for a 50:50 split of the assets, including my ill-health pension. He had a pension set up by his father but decided not to contribute to it and must therefore have been relying on mine. My solicitor seems clueless when I ask if I have any extra protection because I am disabled...leaving the negotiation with my husband up to me. My husband had me in tears in our last mediation meeting as he is adamant that he wants half my pension....yet it is all I have to live on. Can anyone help please?
