If you get divorced or dissolve your civil partnership, the court can consider if your State Pension, or part of it, is a financial asset, which can be shared in a financial settlement through the making of a pension sharing order.
This means that part of the amount you get or could get could be shared with a former husband, wife or civil partner.
Both people involved in the divorce or dissolution need to complete a separate version of the form to get a valuation which will help the court make a decision.
