Asset Division in Divorce - Retirement Accounts

Many of the people who contact our law office indicate that they want a simple no hassle divorce. Frequently, they believe that they are in agreement with their spouse regarding the division of marital assets.

In many occasions, however, people do not understand New York divorce laws and what an equitable division of property really means. One aspect of divorce law that often surprises and upsets people is that all retirement accounts accrued during a marriage are marital assets and subject to equitable division.

In many cases, this causes friction between the parties. However, there are ways of structuring property agreements that both spouses can accept. Finding creative and proactive means of resolving disputes is one of our strengths at Macht, Brenizer & Gingold.
