Hi, Im currently going through a very aggressive divorce with my army husband. Before anyone gets the wrong idea I am not going for his pension, maintenance, property etc in fact quite the opposite he is coming after me for those things. I am therefore looking for a confidential phone nos/email address where I can talk to someone about some of the claims he is making. He is saying he is going to be made redundant, although I know there have obviously been a a lot of redundancies from the army, my husband has never mentioned this before. But if its concern then that's fine but my solicitor has asked him to give an estimate of what his redundancy pay off would be and he has said he is not able to give an sort of figure at all. Does anyone know if this claim is correct. He has also been claiming CEA for our children but there is a problem with some of the paperwork he has supplied regarding this. I just need confidential advice. Can anyone help or anyone have an in depth knowledge of how these things work. My solicitor is a civilian solicitor and does not have a clue. thank you

Hi you need to repost in Legal.

I'm a retired divorce lawyer and used to practice near Catterick but it's years since I did a Services divorce.

Hopefully one of the lovely lawyers on Legal can offer up to date advice

Give SSAFA or AFF a try?

The last lot of redundancies (tranche 4) was complete in June. He should be gone by now! Anyone who left on redundancy knew to within +/- £1k what their payout would be before they applied. So he's snowballing you there.

The AFF can help a lot with military divorces - they have a website and helplines etc.

You should get your sol to ask for a CTEV plus have a look here www.gov.uk/government/publications/armed-forces-pensions-on-divorce-and-dissolution-of-civil-partnerships/guidance-and-information
