What Type Of Retirement Account Is At Stake?
One of the most complex asset divisions as part of a divorce requires qualified domestic relations orders. QDROs involve the nontaxable transfer of the portion of the pension plan benefits and retirement accounts one spouse earned during the marriage to another spouse. Specific plans subject to division include:
- 401(k) plans
- Profit sharing plans
- Tax-deferred annuities
- Deferred compensation plans
- Defined benefit pension plans
- Military retirement
- Federal and state civil service pensions
- Labor union worker pension plans
We work with skilled and industry-respected experts to prepare the QDRO. From there, we review the breakdown of what each spouse is entitled to and enter negotiations or pursue litigation.
We understand the stakes that are involved in dividing pensions and other valuable assets that took years to build. Our focus is on the peace of mind and financial welfare of our clients.
