Protecting Your Rights In The Division Of Retirement Accounts And Benefits

In property division, a great deal of attention is focused on division of finances and real property. But retirement funds are often as substantial as these other assets, and dividing complex retirement packages can be a challenge for many divorce lawyers.

The rule of property division in divorce is that everything is on the table, except for assets that are clearly nonmarital.

At Shulman Family Law Group, many of our clients are owners, executives and leaders in substantial businesses. Their retirement packages can be complex, involving a combination of:

Retirement Savings Plans

  • Defined benefit pension plans
  • Defined contribution pension plans
  • State/county pension plans
  • Executive stock options
  • Deferred compensation
  • IRAs
  • SEP-IRAs
  • Roth IRAs
  • 401(k)s
  • Military retirement benefits

Other Employee Benefits

  • Life insurance
  • Health insurance
  • Dental benefits
  • Profit sharing
  • Stock option plan
  • Social Security
