Valuing And Dividing Retirement Assets And Investments

Retirement assets are unique. Often, they will not reach their full value until a future date. This can make it difficult to value and divide in a divorce.

The way a retirement asset is divided will depend on the type of asset involved. In some situations, it may be in your best interests to divide the asset in your divorce. In other cases, it may be better to wait and divide the asset at a later time, which can be done by preparing and submitting a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) during your divorce.

Our attorneys can help you weigh your options, assess the value of your retirement assets and work with you to develop a plan that meets your needs. We help clients divide all types of retirement assets and funds, including:

  • Government and personal pensions
  • 401(k)s
  • Annuities
  • IRAs
  • Stocks and bonds
