We provide the legal guidance and support that can protect your immediate and long-term financial security after a divorce.
Division Of Retirement
In most cases, especially in long-term marriages, your biggest asset will be your pension and retirement. This may also be the most difficult asset to divide for many couples. Your 401(k) has both a present value and future interest. The present value will be the amount divided through equitable distribution.
Our attorneys, along with expert forensic accountants if necessary, will help you to determine a present and future value for your account to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
Our West Virginia pension division attorneys can assist you with any of the following:
- Retirement accounts
- Pension valuation
- Asset allocation
- Marital property division
- Preservation of assets
- Equitable distribution
- Basic QDROs (qualified domestic relations orders)
We will help clients file a basic Qualified Domestic Relations Order, also known as “QDRO,” that will divide a pension or retirement pursuant to a court’s final order. This requires the eye of a skilled West Virginia pension division lawyer.
In equitable distribution, the bottom line is that in most cases your division of property must be equal. Our attorneys will help you to protect your investments, savings and assets, and make sure you take away what you deserve.
