How Are Retirement Assets Divided in a New Jersey Divorce?

Like all other types of property, retirement accounts must be accounted for and an agreement on their division must be reached. Importantly, retirement savings you accumulated before getting married are not subject to division. What you saved during the marriage will be divided under the rules of equitable distribution.

A Comprehensive Approach to Retirement Assets

With 60 years of combined experience, our Cherry Hill divorce attorneys have access to a reliable network of financial experts and tax professionals who assist us in valuing and dividing all types of retirement assets such as:

  • 401(k) Plans
  • IRAs (Both Traditional and Roth)
  • Corporate and Public Pensions
  • Deferred Compensation Plans
  • Thrift Savings Plans
  • Other Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution Plans
  • Qualified Domestic Relations Orders

Many retirement plans require that a Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO) be filed before the plan administrator will disburse funds. QDROs are highly technical in nature and can have a very large impact on any divorce. An incorrect or missing QDRO can result in heavy tax penalties and an overall reduction in the value of the marital estate. Because we have extensive experience in complex property division, we are able to handle these documents for clients, often with the assistance of professionals who specialize in QDROs.

Client Reviews
Mr. Graziano had my best interests in mind when he represented me. He is clearly knowledgeable and handled my divorce quickly and efficiently. I'd hire him if I ever found myself needing a divorce lawyer again. Nadia
Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
Ron is an extremely trustworthy lawyer. Listen to what he says and have faith in him, you will be as impressed as I am! I couldn't have dreamed of a better outcome in my case. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to represent me, I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing lawyer!!
His staff is amazing as well!!
