Pensions

In a divorce action, pension benefits accrued during the marriage become part of the property settlement. If you or your partner has a pension, the court will determine how to divide the asset. Depending on the type of pension asset, it can be divided “in kind” between the parties by a Qualified Domestic Relation Order which divides the portions for distribution upon retirement or offset in some other way against other property assets. Obviously, this can become a complex issue so the guidance of a knowledgeable family law attorney is valuable. It becomes very important how the language in a divorce judgment is written. Each case is unique and I am very happy to find out your facts and assist you with your case to make sure you receive the full value of your investment of time and money and guarantee your retirement.
