Division of Retirement Plans and Investments Through Collaborative Law
Divorce litigation is often a poor choice for couples dividing retirement plans and other investments. Litigation:
- Takes key decisions out of participants’ hands
- Places decision-making power with a stranger who will have, at best, a few hours to become fully acquainted with participants’ lives, finances and futures
- Is a process that sets one party against the other, thus guaranteeing a continuation of and, likely, an escalation of, hostility
Evolve to a Better Choice
While litigation is the dispute-resolution choice for most divorcing couples, it is also true that a large majority of divorcing people choose Collaborative Law once they understand how it works.
How Retirement Plans and Investments Are Divided Through Collaborative Law
The court will attempt to divide retirement plans and investments in an equitable manner. But what if one spouse is older and will not be able to build much retirement savings? Or what if you have some ideas on how to divide assets that you think will better benefit both you and your spouse?
Through the Collaborative Law Process I, Maury White, Attorney at Law, can help you and your spouse arrive at a point of trust so that the two of you can dictate your asset division solution, not the court.
