Mathew Richardson hosts the Class Legal webinar on pensions, joined by George Mathieson and Rhys Taylor, Barrister, Arbitrator, Mediator at 36 Family.
The 1-hour discussion is an informative look at how the Covid crisis has affected pension on divorce.
Covered in the webinar:
- What are the three things which are affecting pension valuations at the moment and how do these affect Defined Contributions pensions and Private Defined Benefit pensions?
- Can I get a pension CE or updated CE at the moment?
- If you cannot get an updated pension CE, is it OK for the Pension on Divorce expert (PODE) to make an estimate?
- Can I reply on my report from 2 months ago?
- Is there any point in sending a letter of instruction to a PODE with pension CEVs that were obtained 4 months ago?
- Disclaimers, do I need to use one?
- Do you think the way family finance cases are dealt with in the future will change in the future due to the Covid 19 lockdown?
- Will there be more ENE, ADR, remote hearings etc?
- I can’t reach an agreement with solicitors for H that a PODE should be appointed/settle the LOI/ can I use Arbitration for that issue?
- I have a consent order with Pension Sharing Order signed by the parties and we have been told that the DN won’t be pronounced until the courts re-open.
- The sealed order is lost in the system – what are the implications of this?
- Is there anything the applicant can do to protect themselves pending implementation?
- Will my pension sharing order still be implemented?
- Pension Sharing (Implementation and discharge of liability) Regulations 2000
- Defined benefit private sector scheme
