Dividing Pensions, IRAs and 401K Plans In Divorce

Retirement benefits are often the largest assets, other than the home, that need to be divided between divorcing couples. This process can be complex and time-consuming, and you need legal counsel who is familiar with the division of these types of plans. At the Law Office of Dawn M. Green, we practice exclusively in Maryland family law. You can rely on us to listen attentively to your goals as we work tirelessly to help meet your needs.

The dedicated attorneys at our Maryland family law firm have extensive experience helping divorced couples with complex marital property settlements. We can help you reach an asset division agreement involving all types of deferred compensation plans, including:

  • Pension

Many of these assets are difficult to value and it is complicated to try and divide them equitably. We will work closely with you to help you identify which assets are marital property and will be subject to division. Through alternative dispute resolution and mediation, we can help you come up with alternative asset divisions that will allow you to hold onto your pension. If this is not possible, we will tenaciously represent your interests in court.
