Division of Retirement

Division Of Retirement

Retirement and investment issues easily present some of the most complicated, nuanced and challenging issues in all of property division. Questions arise regarding what (if any) part can be divided, and what its potential value is in the future. Certain assets, like in the case of a 401(k), may be partially marital and partially nonmarital — but the court can only divide that which is considered marital, or obtained after the marriage. Once this already complex issue is resolved, one must consider depreciation, capital gains, tax and basis reporting subtleties.

Because of the potentially colossal nuances and complex issues involved, it is critical to reach out to a legal team that is able to address these forensic issues.
