Dividing Retirement Benefits In Divorce

Many divorcing couples do not realize just how valuable retirement benefits can be. Quite often, this is the most significant marital asset on the table.

Don't underestimate the role that your or your spouse's retirement accounts or benefits will play in your future, and don't allow your spouse to take more than his or her fair share. Instead, engage the counsel and assistance of a divorce and family law attorney skilled in these matters.

At The Law Offices of Lyndon R. Helton, PLLC, we are available to vigorously defend your interests when it comes to the division of retirement benefits. Our lawyers handle high-asset divorces involving:

  • 401(k)s
  • Pensions
  • Individual retirement accounts (IRAs)
  • Military pensions and benefits
  • And more

These Complex Matters Require Professional Representation

Out of all the different facets of family law, dividing retirement benefits is one of the most complicated. For instance, military pensions come with special rules and restrictions. The way that certain assets are divided can cause unintended tax consequences. Our attorneys are not tax attorneys or CPAs, but we will work with you and your CPA to make sure there are no surprises.

The smallest error can create serious financial problems for a person and his or her family, both today and into the future. This means that skilled legal representation is critical.

Do not leave your financial security to chance — consult our law firm.
