What Does Division of Benefits Involve?

Dividing marital property during divorce can be time-consuming. Determining who will get the house, vehicles, furniture and sometimes even pets can cause a lot of turmoil. Division of benefits falls into that same stressful category. Benefit distribution is dependent upon a number of factors, which include:

  • Length of time married
  • Marriage contribution, such as marital assets and/or child rearing responsibilities
  • Individual spousal employment during the marriage
  • Individual debts and liabilities
  • Individual spousal circumstances
  • Amount of savings acquired during marriage versus prior to marriage

In addition to private and employee retirement benefit plans being included in divorce negotiations, Social Security benefits are included as well. Understanding what each spouse is entitled to and how to protect your benefits is important in divorce. You do not want to do this alone and risk losing everything you have worked for. Speak with a member of our team and we can guide you in the right direction.
