Fierce Protection For Your Retirement And Inheritance

Some assets are more easily divisible than others. And many assets have greater priority for you than others. You could be relying on an inheritance, for example, or have been planning for retirement for years.

Divorce can throw a wrench in all those plans. At Advocate, LLP, our experienced divorce lawyers understand that some assets must be protected vigorously. We can help you with property division in a divorce regarding:

  • Inherited assets. While inheritances are often protected from distribution in a divorce, there are often issues involving commingling of inherited funds with marital monies. In addition, some trusts and wills have provisions regarding an inheritance if a divorce is pending.
  • Retirement accounts. We can create a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) and other legal documents to help divide a pension, 401(k) or IRA. Retirement accounts, even if earned solely by one party to the divorce, are marital property and subject to division.
  • Investments. Whether you have ownership in a business or unvested stock options, we understand how to protect, value and, when necessary, divide investments and business interests equitably. Because such divisions can be complex, it is vital to secure the services of a knowledgeable family law attorney who understands the proper valuation methods of nonliquid investments.
