Naperville Divorce Lawyers for Protecting Retirement Accounts

DuPage County Retirement Accounts in Divorce Attorneys

Division of Assets Attorneys in DuPage County

Over the last several decades, saving for retirement has become a personal responsibility, as employment-related pensions have become relatively uncommon. This means that more people are taking the initiative to put their hard earned money away for the future. Divorce, however, is a life change that can alter your plans drastically, so it is important to be prepared. At Calabrese Associates, P.C., we aid you in protecting your financial security for retirement.

Warrenville Lawyers Knowledgeable in Property Division Laws

According to Illinois law, virtually all property, assets, and debts acquired by you or your spouse during your marriage are considered marital property, regardless of who earned or acquired them. Retirement savings and investments are no different. Any resources you have put aside in a 401(k), 403(b), IRA account, or a pension plan, are marital property if they were acquired after you were married (unless explicitly addressed by a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement). Our attorneys assist you in determining how much, if any, of your retirement savings may be exempt from the division of asset process.

We are also equipped to help you evaluate your retirement savings and investments. With compounding interest formulas and various contribution sources throughout your working years, determining the true value of these assets can be complicated. When necessary, our lawyers work with financial experts and industry professionals to establish the worth of your retirement investments and what portion is subject to division.

Protecting Your Assets and Your Future

The experienced team at Calabrese Associates, P.C. has been helping families around the area with divorce matters for more than 20 years. We realize a negotiated settlement is most often in the best interest of all involved parties, and we will assist you in developing an agreement that meets your needs. If dividing a particular retirement account is required, we draft the necessary documents, including a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) or Qualified Illinois Domestic Relations Order (QILDRO), to facilitate disbursement by your financial institutions.

When necessary, our attorneys are willing and able to advocate on your behalf in litigation. In some cases, a negotiated settlement is not possible, and we are prepared to take your issue into the courtroom.
