Houston Investment & Retirement Account Lawyer
Who Gets the Retirement Account in the Divorce?
Houston Lawyers Explain Texas and Federal Law
In divorce, retirement accounts and investment accounts are often considered to be a mixture of community and separate property. According to federal law, divorce courts are allowed to award part of one spouse’s investment and retirement accounts to the other in the property settlement under a qualified domestic relations order or QDRO.
In some cases, a retirement account may be the single most important asset under consideration in the divorce. At Lindamood & Robinson, we have the experience and legal knowledge to help our clients protect their interests in a full range of investment and retirement vehicles subject to division in a QDRO, including:
- Retirement accounts such as a 401(k), 403(b) or individual retirement accounts (IRA)
- Investment accounts, stocks and stock options, bonds and certificates of deposit (CDs)
- Pensions, annuities, corporate dividends and other forms of compensation
Protect your separate assets and your fair share of any community assets. Contact our offices in Houston today to discuss your situation with an experienced Houston investment & retirement accounts lawyer. The initial consultation is completely confidential.
