Dividing Retirement Assets

Among the many assets that must be divided between spouses during divorce, retirement accounts are some of the most important. However, they can also be some of the most challenging assets to fairly divide. When splitting up a pension, 401(k), IRA or other retirement account, you must be aware of any issues regarding early withdrawal penalties, taxation, vesting and more.

With more than 75 combined years of experience, the New Jersey attorneys at Townsend, Tomaio & Newmark, L.L.C., fully understand the relevant issues and concerns at stake in divorce and retirement. Our Morristown law firm is well equipped to help you defend your fair share of these retirement assets and make the most of your future.

Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO) in New Jersey

After a divorce, the court may give an order for the division of certain retirement benefits. This is called a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) and may affect the division of 401(k)s, pensions and other retirement plans.

Retirement plans for teachers, law enforcement personnel, government employees and certain others are often considered non-qualified plans. In these cases, the court will often issue a domestic relations order (DRO) instead of a QDRO.
