Attorney for Dividing Retirement in Seattle

When most people think of protecting their assets during their divorce, they are primarily concerned with their home and the appropriate division of any debts.  But your retirement is also an important part of your personal assets, and the matter will come up during your divorce proceedings too.

Our Seattle family lawyer works with clients to protect all of their assets during their divorce, including any retirement funds.  These funds may include:

As many clients have accessed their retirement accounts prior to reaching the age of 55, we can also help you with determining how the Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), which imposes certain taxes and penalties for accessing the account, will affect you during your divorce. Certain tax and penalty exemptions exist for divorcing couples who decide to divide their accounts, so we may be able to help save you some money.

Our Seattle family lawyer provides representation in Kirkland, Bellevue, Renton and Tacoma. If you have any questions about property division or how it may affect your retirement accounts and savings, please call our offices and schedule a free initial consultation with a top Seattle family attorney.
