Dealing with superannuation policies on divorce is one of the harder elements of family law work. But when there are foreign supers, pensions, involved, the matter becomes incredibly more complicated. Superannuations differ around the world with different fiscal implications, benefits, valuations and level of funds consistent with the lifestyle and overall finances of the family. Advice from a super adviser is essential to understand the foreign super and how it can be shared. But a sharing order itself is not (always) sufficient. Enforcement and implementation has to be considered before the final financial settlement. This paper asks questions about these issues, to encourage discussion, collaboration and debate to lead to better international family law practice.
