How Are Retirement Benefits Handled In Divorce?
In many marriages, retirement accounts are the largest acquired assets. In these cases, the rights of each party to those benefits becomes a critical issue. Retirement plans were not meant to be divided, which makes the process of splitting them up rather complicated. You want a sophisticated lawyer who understands all the requirements, has in-depth knowledge of the law, and can answer your most detailed questions.
At Radford J. Smith, Chartered, our attorneys can handle the most complex aspects of marital asset division, including even the most complicated of retirement benefits and compensation packages. All federally qualified retirement plan interests must be taken care of properly. We will ensure that division of your retirement plan complies with all applicable Nevada and federal laws.
There are also important concerns specific to military retirement pay and Nevada’s Public Employees Retirement System (PERS). With over four decades of combined experience dedicated to family law concerns, our firm understands your rights when it comes to pension and retirement benefits. Our goal is to make sure you are protected well into the future.
