My partner has been separated for 6 years. They have a 10-year-old. Now looking at a divorce. There are no custody problems or property settlement to sort out other than his superannuation. We know his ex can make a claim on his superannuation, but to what extent? Is she able to claim on only the amount in his fund at the time of separation, the amount in his fund at the time of divorce - or would she be awarded a percentage of his total superannuation at the time of it's maturity in say 20 odd years time - thus receiving a much larger figure?? I have read that all property settlements must be claimed within 12 months of divorce - would a superannuation claim fall under this ruling also? Thanks for your help.
