Dividing Pensions IRAs And 401 K S

Montgomery County Pension Division Attorneys

Dividing Pensions, IRAs & 401(k)s in a High Asset Divorce

One of the most important assets that will come up during the property division aspect of your divorce is your retirement account. Because retirement accounts play a huge role in your financial stability later in life, it is imperative that the division of your accounts be handled by attorneys who have the experience to make sure it's done correctly.

Call our office at (610) 365-4733 for your initial consultation today.

At Testa & Pagnanelli, LLC, we have over 15 years of combined experience practicing family law in Montgomery County, Norristown, and the surrounding areas.

We have helped nearly every one of our divorce clients through the process of dividing different types of retirement accounts, including:

  • 401(k)s
  • Pensions
  • IRAs

Qualified Domestic Relations Orders

To divide some retirement accounts, including 401(k)s and certain pension plans, you must have a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO). A QDRO allows you to divide an account without incurring any penalties.

To be effective, however, a QDRO must be filed early and properly. Filing a QDRO after a divorce settlement is finalized can lead to serious problems. We know that your share of a pension or retirement account may not be protected without a QDRO. We will carefully assess your accounts to determine the proper way to prepare your QDRO so there are no surprises later on.
