Dividing Retirement Assets in Pennsylvania

The state of Pennsylvania considers a number of factors when dividing assets, including the length of the marriage and the financial fitness of each partner. Some states divide assets down the middle without consideration for circumstances. This makes Pennsylvania's laws fairer to both parties, but it also makes negotiating the division of retirement funds that much more complicated. It is essential to have a competent attorney by your side.

Normally, you cannot touch retirement funds before retirement age without penalty. Divorce is an extenuating circumstance that allows couples to make changes not normally allowed, without penalty. This means retirement funds can be re-distributed to accommodate the divorce agreements.

The more retirement assets you have, the more complex negotiations will be. Sheryl R. Rentz has decades of experience fighting for clients with high net worth, getting them settlements they were happy with. Out legal team understands that it’s not just money - don’t lose your financial security in a divorce; call us today.

Protect Your Future With a Pennsylvania Property Division Lawyer

Dividing Pennsylvania retirement funds can be difficult for all involved. If you were a stay-at-home parent who depended on your spouse for financial stability, you have a right to part of the retirement funds earned while you were married. If you were the bread-winning spouse, you need to make sure the divorce process does not decimate your finances. Funds acquired prior to your marriage are not available for division with your former spouse. You need a Pennsylvania lawyer to protect your rights and your future.

Despite your best efforts, cases involving retirement accounts won’t settle out of court, especially when you are dealing with a contentious, high-asset divorce. If a settlement cannot be reached, the case heads to trial, where a divorce judge will rule on the outstanding affairs. If you are going to trial, you need an experienced divorce trial lawyer by your side. Get Sheryl R. Rentz in your corner.
