The decision of HHJ Lord Meston QC (pictured) (sitting as a deputy High Court judge) inWS v WS[2015] EWHC 3941 (Fam) provides a considered overview of offsetting pensions in financial remedy orders. This is an area of family work where there is precious little guidance and a diversity of views.

This case provides a helpful summary but it does involve a big money case where needs were already met by the other assets in the case.
