Whats important to know about Retirement & Pensions in a Divorce?

  • In the state of New Jersey, retirement plans and pension plans are subject to equitable distribution, which means that the marital share of that plan, pension or 401(k), is distributed equally between the parties.
  • This is done via a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (or QDRO).
  • I suggest you consult an experienced attorney if you are facing this.
