Retirement accounts raise a wide variety of important questions during divorce. Such questions include, “How do we fairly divide the value?” and “I don’t retire for 10 years, so does my ex-spouse get half or only a small part?”
At the Jackson Law Firm in Texas, our Cedar Park and Austin attorneys for retirement and divorce are experienced in the complexities and nuances of property division. One of the most important factors to consider is that of community property versus separate property. In most cases, both individuals already started their retirement savings before marriage, which makes the accounts a mixture of community and separate property. Attorney Justin M. Jackson can explain the applicable formula and what you can expect in your particular situation.
