Retirement assets, such as pension plans, 401(k) plans, and IRAs, are considered marital assets if they were earned or contributed to during the marriage. As part of any divorce or dissolution, a Court may use a special kind of court order, for example, a “Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO)” or “Division of Property Order,” to divide a retirement plan between the parties. You will want to make sure this is done properly and in a manner that is fair to you. With her 30 plus years of experience, Linda J. Miller is well-versed on the division of retirement plans in divorces and dissolutions. Contact her at 614-556-4285.
