Protecting Your Retirement During Divorce

During a divorce, retirement proceeds are one of the largest and most complex assets to divide between spouses. To understand your rights and the options you have during your divorce, the lawyers at Bieber & Czechowski can help. Our Michigan firm serves clients in Warren and Sterling Heights and all of Michigan. We give each client the personal attention they deserve.

Maximize Your Rightful Share

All types of retirement plans are subject to division by a court in the divorce process. We seek to reach an outcome that gives our clients the proceeds to which they are entitled. We handle complex division of assets such as:

  • 401(k) plans
  • 403(b) plans
  • IRAs
  • Pensions
  • Defined benefit pensions
  • Annuities

Evaluating Every Asset

Michigan state laws set forth the procedures used to determine division of various retirement assets. Much of the outcome is based on how much you accrued during the marriage, since this amount will be considered marital property. Whether your rights are vested or unvested, each retirement asset will be identified, evaluated and potentially divided. We can help you understand what to expect in this component of divorce and work to achieve the fairest possible settlement for you.

Our entire team of lawyers and staff are proficient in handling complex division of property matters. In addition, we have provided comprehensive estate planning services for decades. Thus, we are in a position to advise you on a complete plan toward preserving and protecting your assets during divorce and in the future.
