Posted in Location, Ontario, Separation, Windsor by Questions on September 20, 2013

August 14/2013. Me and my wife are planning to separate. We both are currently working for the same company. She has 24 years of service. I have 30 years.the company provides a pension/ ford motor co. I plan to retire sept1/2013. In doing so. Would I be entitled to alimony from her because of the disparity in weekly income. She would take home 950$ net. While I draw 675$ net from my pension. And also would I be entitled to her 24 years of pension credits would that be considered an asset of the estate. We have been married 28 years

    The question you are asking about deals with how a pension is treated once it is in pay in the context of separation or divorce. Either the pension is treated as an asset and divided or it is considered income for the purposes of dealing with the issue of spousal support. Without knowing the details of your case, I cannot provide you any specifics regarding which approach should be taken. I suggest you consult with a lawyer in your area for further information.
