The inclusion of retirement assets is a necessary component of an equitable distribution of assets in a Connecticut divorce. Deferred compensation plans and other retirement-related assets are considered marital property even if only one spouse contributed to them during the marriage.

People who attempt do-it-yourself divorces tend to overlook these very important and very valuable assets. They need help from an experienced Greenwich retirement asset division attorney.

Your retirement assets may include the following:

  • Pensions
  • 401(k) savings accounts
  • IRAs
  • Roth IRAs
  • Deferred compensation
  • Unused sick leave
  • Any defined benefits that mature upon retirement

Proper valuation of retirement assets is a job best handled by professional financial experts. A divorce lawyer takes the information provided by a CPA, actuary, or economist and adds it to the mix of components of an equitable asset distribution settlement agreement.

Division of pensions and other deferred compensation retirement funds may be performed by way of a QDRO (Qualified Domestic Relations Order) which will divide these funds without triggering tax penalties.

The Law Offices of Douglas J. Wells represents parties in divorce, fully accounting for all assets that figure into an equitable distribution agreement, including the following:

  • Real estate
  • Vehicles
  • Bank accounts
  • Stocks and stock options
  • Retirement accounts and other deferred compensation
