Division of Retirement Benefits

With many government employees moving to or living in Virginia, retirement benefits for work in the military or other government entities are common in divorce actions, specifically property division. FBI agents or CIA personnel need a higher level of representation from an attorney who possesses knowledge of tax and other financial implications.

We understand the high stakes nature of property division that involves valuable assets.

Defined benefit retirement accounts are impacted by divorce. The stakes are high when IRAs, 401(k) plans and 403(b) plans are subject to property division. In Virginia, pensions are considered marital property when earned during a marriage. Regardless of the type of account, the process is complex when determining present value.

Even if spouses come to an agreement on their own, attention to every detail is vital in dividing defined benefit retirement account or filing a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) as part of dividing assets in a divorce.
