Dividing Your Retirement Assets Fairly
In a divorce, all marital property is divided between the parties. Not only does this include the house and vehicles, but it also includes retirement assets you have saved or earned during your marriage. Attorney Ira Yellin can help you assess, value and divide retirement assets in your divorce so you receive a fair and equitable division.
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 attorney 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
- Stocks and bonds
