Hi, I am attempting to reach some level of mutual financial and property settlement with my wife prior to divorce. Having previously worked in the national health service in the U.K before we moved to Australia, and having built up a pension entitlement, I am eligible for a CETV ( cash equivalent transfer ). I wish to use this as part of our agreement and be able to draw up a contract whereby she becomes a recipient of this in order that I trade it off and keep our property. She informs me her lawyer advises such a contract for transfer to her cannot be done (the financial split between property value and pension value is roughly equal and could be made so with minor adjustments). I can't see any reason why such a contract could not be made and enacted - am I missing something ?
