Retirement Accounts:

In many divorce cases, one or both spouses may have a 401(k), IRA, pension, or retirement account. In some cases, these accounts began prior to the marriage. The portion acquired prior to the marriage is non-marital whereas the portion acquired during the marriage is marital and subject to being equitably distributed between the parties.

Calculating the Marital Value of the Retirement:

There are different financial formulas used to calculate the value of the non-marital portion versus the marital portion. In some cases, the method may be relatively straightforward. In others, there may be a dispute as to the calculation method. An experienced divorce attorney will be able to assist you in determining the value of the non-marital portion versus the value of the marital portion subject to equitable distribution.

Disbursement:

In some cases the plan provider may be able to simply apportion off a spouse’s share upon request. In others, a qualified domestic relations order may be necessary to direct the plan provider to do this. An experienced divorce lawyer will be able to assist you in having this done.

Florida Statutes:

Speak with an Orlando divorce retirement account attorney today or review the following Florida Statutes for some more information on divorce law in Florida:

Florida Statute 61.075 – Equitable distribution of marital assets and liabilities.
Florida Statute 61.076 – Distribution of retirement plans upon dissolution of marriage.
