Dividing Retirement Funds in Houston
Pensions and retirement funds should never be overlooked by people going through a divorce. These assets must be valued and divided. They are unique and must be treated differently from a house, a car or other pieces of property because of their tax implications.
At the law firm of Joseph Indelicato, Jr., P.C., we know how to handle the division of these unique assets during divorce. We know how to deal with the fact that these assets are not actually accessible now. We know how to address the tax implications involved and how to pursue results that make sense for you. Contact our Houston law firm to learn how we can help you.
A Texas Divorce Lawyer Handling All Aspects of Pension and Retirement Fund Division
Division of pensions and retirement funds in divorce requires the creation of a qualified domestic relations order, also referred to as a QDRO. It is important to have a lawyer who has experience drafting these agreements for people in similar situations as yourself.
Our Texas law firm is in an unusually strong position because, in addition to having a board-certified family law attorney, we also have a board-certified estate planning and probate lawyer on staff who previously practiced employment benefits law almost exclusively for a number of years. This means that we truly understand all pensions and retirement funds, including:
- Stock options
- Military pensions
- Federal retirement plans
- Texas retirement and pension plans
- Deferred pensions
Not only can we put together QDROs, other lawyers frequently come to us to do theirs. QDROs are a crucial element for the property division in divorce cases. We don't have to farm it out. We do it right here.
Protecting Your Rights Inside and Outside of the Courtroom
Whether or not it involves pension valuation and retirement funds, divorce can be handled in two ways: The two parties can strive to reach a divorce settlement or they can take the battle to court.
Our attorneys are skilled in litigation and divorce agreements. We can work with you to design a fair settlement that meets your needs. We can also go into the courtroom, where we will take into account the unique nuances and habits of the judge in order to fight for the outcome that you want.
