Dividing a retirement account can be a difficult, complex process that will require assistance from your attorney. A court order can be entered to divide a retirement plan; once this happens it must be decided how the plan will be divided.

My mild-mannered lawyer was a pit bull in the courtroom!...
I came to Kevin with a nasty divorce situation complete with kiddos & an affair (tho not by me!) The whole mess was devastating, emotionally & financially. But in the end, Kevin was money well spent! I have my life back, my kids live with me, & a very nice settlement to top it off. And I must say, it was great seeing my ex on the stand getting caught in his lies! --My mild-mannered lawyer was a pit bull in the courtroom!
