Can my emotionally abusive dad go after my hardworking mum’s pension if she divorces him?

Posted on 9th May 2017

My mum and dad are separated and living apart now for several years. Dad was emotionally abusive and unfaithful to mum for years.
He has lost any joint money they had – savings etc. apart from their home. Dad hadn’t paid anything towards the mortgage for years when he left mum and said she could keep the house.She sold the house and what little was left over after paying the debts dad had racked up was then spent on another property.Dad has always said he’d not come after any money from mum as he behaved so badly. But he’s not a nice person and I can see him going back on this.She now wants rid of him from her life – through divorce. But she is retired and lives off her pension, which she worked hard for years as a nurse to get, plus her state pension. Dad doesn’t have a pension of his own.
