Retirement Accounts Lawyer in Fairfield and Stamford CT
Hard working professionals in Fairfield County often have substantial retirement accounts. The division of these accounts in a Connecticut divorce is subject to “equitable distribution.” This means that all money contributed to a 401(k) or other type of tax-deferred retirement account can be awarded exclusively to one spouse or divided based on what a judge thinks is fair. In addition, interest earned on the money contributed, as well as prospective earnings at the time of disbursement of the funds, is also subject to equitable distribution.
If you are considering filing for divorce in Connecticut and a 401(k), pension or other type of individual retirement account is marital property, make sure you have an aggressive, knowledgeable divorce attorney fighting for your financial interests. I have many years of experience representing clients with retirement accounts of high net worth. I understand the issues involved in asset valuation. I also work with independent professionals who are experts in their field of actuarial accounting and qualified domestic relations orders (QDROs) involving pension valuation and expectations of future earnings potential.
Don’t leave your financial future to chance in your divorce settlement. Contact me to arrange a consultation to discuss your particular circumstances and financial needs following your divorce.
I have experience representing clients in divorce property settlements involving:
- Pensions and retirement accounts, IRA holdings
- Trust fund assets
- Stock accounts, mutual funds
- Deferred compensation
- Life insurance benefits
Sometimes, despite best efforts, cases involving retirement accounts just cannot settle. When this happens, the case heads to trial where a divorce judge will decide the outstanding issues. If you are going to trial, you need an experienced divorce litigation and trial lawyer by your side. Trust my experience.
