People often overlook the significance of retirement accounts in the division of property in a divorce. It is not uncommon that the value of retirement savings is the number one marital asset or number two after the family home. Retirement funds can be quite technical to divide. Any money set aside prior to marriage is separate from marital property. But as interest accumulates, some of the value may become marital in nature. In the case of 401(k) and 403(b), the court may issue a qualified domestic relations order, or QDRO, a form that is both complex and fraught with risk. Our Blue Springs division of retirement attorney at the Troy J. Leavitt Law Firm, LLC can provide you with detailed legal guidance.
There is no better time to have a skilled retirement division attorney than during a QDRO. Troy J. Leavitt has enjoyed steady success working within the requirements of QDROs. If you have substantial retirement accounts to divide, you need to work with an experienced QDRO attorney like Troy Leavitt. Just because you held down the job, and the benefits have your name on them, does not mean they belong to you.
