Dividing Pensions In Divorce Requires The Help Of A Skilled Attorney

Dividing a pension is a complicated yet crucial matter in many divorces. Do not put it in the hands of a lesser experienced attorney who lacks knowledge of financial and taxation issues.

I am family law attorney Keith Schulefand, the founder of Keith B. Schulefand, Esq. I bring years of experience and insight into pension division to those facing divorce.

The Need For A Legal And Financial Background In Pension Division

I use my Master of Business Administration (MBA) to handle the challenging details of divorces that involve high assets or military personnel is paramount to tackle the difficulties of pension division.

Far too much is at stake to settle for anything less. You need an advocate to ensure that you retain the benefits you are entitled to following your divorce.

Facilitating A Tax-Free Pension Transfer Process

I handle all aspects of defined benefit pension divisions that involve IRAs, 401(k) plans and 403(b) plans. The first step is to file a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) to allow a transfer of pension funds to occur without taxes being assessed. Overlooking that important post-divorce strategy will result in a hefty tax bill from the IRS.
