Guiding You Through Divorce
Dividing Retirement Funds
Some couples attempt to handle their divorce themselves and run the risk of omitting steps needed to secure retirement and estate plans, including the transfer of investments and property rights. We will guide you by following up with the appropriate documents and court orders needed to assure you have the assets you are entitled to at retirement. Without this kind of step-by-step guidance, you could lose your legal rights to these assets.
Don’t sell your property rights short at the time of the divorce thinking you’ll be able to obtain them later — you won’t.
Ensure All Marital Property Is Divided In Your Divorce
If you do not carefully divide all of your property during the dissolution process, you may lose it. If you do not address it during the ongoing divorce proceeding or should you not appeal the decree within 30 days of the finalization of your divorce, the courts can no longer address the assets in question. If at that point the assets in question are not divided, you will lose your rights to them forever. This includes retirement accounts and pensions.
