Concerned About Retirement Savings After Divorce? I Can Help.
There are many different types of retirement accounts that a person can have. Two prevalent types of Texas retirement accounts include:
- Defined contributions: Your employer makes contributions to this retirement account based on a number of factors. This account lasts until it has been depleted.
- Defined benefits: These plans give you a set income each month once you retire. The benefits are based on your wage and years of service, and last until you pass away.
To make sure that these and all other accounts are disclosed, I conduct a thorough investigation through the court’s discovery process. I then use the skills and knowledge that led me to be certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and awarded a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree to determine what portion of these accounts you deserve
Division Of Retirement Assets Is Not Always A 50-50 Split
Texas is a community property state. Many people assume that means assets such as retirement accounts are divided 50-50. But Texas family judges do not have to automatically divide assets in a 50-50 split. They are instead able to divide property in an equitable, or fair, manner depending on the circumstances of the case.
With a deep understanding of Texas family law, I am able to make skillfully crafted arguments designed to obtain the percentage of assets that you deserve.
Wayne Ward is a man of high integrity in a world where this is a rare commodity. He provided good counsel in a very difficult divorce.
