Retirement Asset Disposition

Retirement assets acquired during the marriage may be subject to equitable division in the divorce process.   Identifying and dividing of retirement assets can raise issues requiring experienced counsel. These issues may include identifying employee and employer contributions to a retirement plan, calculating retirement incomes from various sources, maximizing entitlement to Social Security benefits, calculating a present value for retirement assets, determining options for division or distribution of retirement assets, and assessing tax consequences of different retirement disbursements. If you or your spouse are employed by an international organization with offices in the United States, there are unique and complex issues surrounding retirement issues.  We are experienced in assessing these issues and in drafting specialized agreements and court orders which secure agreed upon disposition of retirement interests.
