Avoid Mistakes When Dividing Retirement Assets

The number of couples divorcing after the age of 50 has increased to the point that it now has a name: gray divorce. When you are closer to retirement, it becomes more difficult to make up any shortfall in retirement assets.

At the Law Offices of David M. Lederman, we understand these issues. We can help create a strategy to protect your financial future. We represent clients across Alameda and Contra Costa counties and throughout Northern California in all facets of divorce.

When your long-term marriage ends, emotional ups and downs are part of the divorce process. We can help ensure that you do not make mistakes while at an emotional low point.

Qualified Domestic Relations Order

The division of retirement assets is completed through a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO). We will ensure that the proper documentation has been filed with the plan administrator to protect your portion of the accounts. If this step is overlooked, it can easily lead to unpleasant surprises down the road.

Help Protecting Your Financial Future

We focus on the numbers. Our knowledgeable family law attorneys can ensure you receive a fair portion of the retirement accounts.
