Division Of Retirement Accounts

Our Experience is Only a Call Away

Often, the most significant financial assets in a marriage are the retirement accounts. After the end of a marriage, the retirement accounts must be divided between the parties. Sometimes it is a 50/50 split and in other instances, it is in your best interest to fight for an alternative, more "fair" division of the accounts. Our Georgia and South Carolina lawyers can help divide these retirement assets.

At Floyd Leopard, LLP, we are well-versed in the division of retirement accounts. We have helped many clients who have gone through a divorce to divide the accounts. We can help you determine what is going to be fair for the both of you. We take the time to explore all of the details, including who owns each account, what the balances were at the start of the marriage, the length of the marriage and any other legally relevant factors.

Dividing The Accounts

It can be difficult to know how to best divide the assets because of one party having contributed more to them, one spouse not working outside the home, and more. This is why it's important to work with an attorney, and one of ours will be able to guide you through the process.

The retirement accounts can include:

  • Pension
  • Military Retirement
  • 401(k)
  • IRAs

Whether the accounts belong to you, your partner or are shared property, you want the most that you are entitled to because it is going to impact your financial future. A single mistake made during the division of property could cost you thousands and our attorneys are here to help prevent this from happening.

Our attorneys know the laws pertaining to retirement accounts and can draft the documentation that goes before the courts, as well as the paperwork submitted to the banks holding the accounts in order to release the necessary disbursements. It doesn't have to be a complicated process and that's why we're here.
