Subject: Return to court Posted: Thursday, December 5, 2013 - 12:54:15
My wife and I divorced 8 years ago and the consent order stated I should pay an amount until I was 60 years old, when it would reduce to 5 pence per month.
I have since found out that this is so that she can always return to Court to apply for an increase.
At the time of the divorce she had half of my pension and I have been paying more money in for the last 8 years to make up for this.
Would she be able to apply for more of my pension, as it has increased since the divorce?
Also, as she is now 63 years old and draws state pension, together with the pension she had from me and a small pension she already had, would a judge be likely to award her more money?
There are no children involved now.
