About Your Retirement Accounts In Your Divorce

Divorcing couples with retirement accounts must address the division of assets like 401(k)s and pensions. These are often deemed marital property subject to division through Qualified Domestic Relations Orders. It’s crucial to grasp the unique rules governing each account, considering tax implications and withdrawal penalties.

Professional advice is vital for a successful resolution, and updating beneficiary designations is important. Careful consideration of the long-term financial impact is necessary for both spouses in this process. Clients of Bundy Law Office rely on our attorneys’ deep insights and well-honed skills in the division of high-value and complex marital assets, including retirement accounts.

Types Of Retirement Accounts
