Family Law Solutions For Your Future

Advocating For Your Share Of Retirement Accounts in Estate Planning

If you face divorce and the prospect of splitting multiple income streams and significant assets, you need experienced and detailed legal advocacy to preserve your lifestyle. Quist Law Firm, PLLC can guide you through the entire divorce. Our firm will take the lead in negotiating a favorable settlement, including your equitable share of retirement accounts.

In Michigan, retirement accounts can include investments such as:

  • Pensions
  • 401(k) and 403(b) plans
  • Social Security benefits
  • IRAs and other investments

If a retirement account was started before the marriage, only the amount of assets accumulated during the marriage will be divided in the divorce process.

Taking Control Of Disbursement

After a retirement asset division agreement occurs, disbursement of funds may happen at the time of divorce, or years later when retirement takes place. Government retirement plans may differ from private plans in how they disburse payments. Many retirement plans require a court-approved qualified domestic relations order. Our attorneys will go the extra mile to ensure that all details are in place and that you know what to expect regarding your retirement assets.

Steering You Clear Of Difficulties

As a firm experienced in high-conflict divorce litigation, we know that the divorce process can be difficult, but we aim to minimize surprises. We will take the time to answer all of your questions and provide skilled legal counsel.
