Completing Form E within divorce proceedings is difficult enough but one of the main mistakes is to underestimate the length of time it takes for pension providers to cough up the pension information. But in the first place, it helps to submit the correct document: this is Form P (Pension Inquiry) to each pension fund holder. Using Form P is essential, otherwise the pension providers will not know the context of your request is a divorce and therefore will not give you the information needed for Form E.
Here is a short video on:

Form P is essentially used for the majority of private pension funds. A different pension information request form is used if you are, for instance, in the armed services, a police officer or a teacher. As ever, I can always post on these exceptional circumstances if there is enough interest.
