Anyone know anything about a Clean Break Order?

Just on the off chance, I was wondering if anyone knows anything about a Clean Break order?
I am currently going through a fairly amicable divorce and there is no capital or children involved, but I am concerned about my future inheritance (I would prefer him not to have any claim to this) or pensions. In order to prevent this from happening do I NEED to get this clean break order or is a divorce enough?
Many thanks IA

Seeing as you're talking about getting the money years in the future, a divorce should be enough for the inheritance but pensions are a tricky one. A clean break order would help but best to ask a solicitor if it really is necessary.

Thanks WK, my solicitor advised to get one, but on getting the paperwork through on Friday DP and I are wondering if it is really necessary - I have only been paying into a pension scheme for about a year and a minimum payment at that.

If you solicitor advised you to get one then I would - get it out of the way and then at least you know there's nothing that can come and bite you in the @rse in years to come. If it really is amicable then maybe its a little money down the drain but at least it protects you and if relations with your ex ever break down in future it could save you a lot of money.
