Investments & Retirement Benefits In Divorce

The Fair Division of Assets in Divorce

In cases involving substantial marital assets, it is extremely important to determine the actual value of family businesses, retirement funds, stock options, mutual funds, restricted stock, retirement benefits, and other jointly-owned assets. An experienced divorce lawyer like Mildred B. Sweeney is familiar with the complex issues that can be involved in divorces where there is a large amount of assets.

We know that giving you personal attention is only one part of the representation our clients deserve. We also fight hard for your interests.

The Division of Pensions, Investments and Other Assets

If you acquired any part of your pension, 401(k) or 403(b), TIAA-CREF, stock plan, stock options, deferred compensation and other retirement incentives during the marriage, that portion is marital property and must be shared with your spouse when you divorce. You may be able to trade other assets or come to an agreement if you want to keep your pension or retirement intact.
