Pensions and Property Division Lawyer in Fairfield and Stamford CT
Under Connecticut law, all money paid into pensions, as well as all current earnings and future annuity earnings, are subject to distribution in a divorce settlement. Either spouse could be awarded all or part of a pension or other retirement asset. Knowing the earnings potential and distribution of a pension fund, perhaps decades into the future, requires a firm understanding of actuarial accounting and investment law. Failing to properly value a pension can have devastating consequences on your financial future.
As a Connecticut divorce attorney. I have many years of experience representing people in divorce litigation involving pension funds. Pensions and retirement accounts can often total in the millions of dollars. Both parties rely on the growth potential for a comfortable retirement. Having a knowledgeable attorney who works with financial specialists and professional experts to fight aggressively for your financial interests is key to a full and fair property settlement. Don’t wait until it is too late. Putting the financial “team” together at the early stages of your divorce improves your chances of achieving your desired outcome.
