Protecting Your Retirement Assets In Divorce

In decades past, most people who divorced in Texas were likely to focus on the family home, vehicles and other such hard assets when establishing goals for their divorce settlements. Today, many men and women cite qualified retirement accounts and pension benefits as their highest-value, most indispensable assets.

Clear Legal Information And Guidance On Division Of Complex Assets

Even highly educated people are sometimes shocked to learn that all of their retirement plans and pension benefits may be subject to equitable distribution. The fact that a 401(k) is in one spouse’s name alone is generally immaterial, whereas determination of how much of these funds were earned during the course of the marriage may be highly significant.
