Dividing Your Spouse’s Retirement Account in a Divorce
Divorce can be especially hard on the spouse that earned less money during the marriage. Chances are, if your spouse made more money than you, they have a sizable retirement account. Whether you know exactly how much money is in that account or they have kept it a secret, you are entitled to a portion of the funds that were saved for retirement during your marriage.
Not claiming a portion of the retirement money is a mistake a lot of divorcing spouses make and they pay dearly for it later. After the divorce decree is signed by the judge, it’s too late to have a change of heart about claiming what is rightfully yours. Why give up a comfortable retirement just because you got divorced?
Taking a portion of your spouse’s retirement account in a divorce isn’t spiteful. While he or she was working and building up the accounts, you were sacrificing luxuries for yourself in the present while the retirement funds compounded for the future. It was your money too and you deserve to have the retirement you planned for when you helped your spouse make the elections on the 401(k) and IRA forms.
So, instead of fighting for the house which will likely decrease in value and cost you money to maintain, negotiate for a larger portion of the retirement accounts. With a qualified domestic relations order, you can move funds from your spouse’s account into your own without any early withdrawal penalties. So if you are worried about your former spouse’s future financial well-being, just make sure you get a QDRO, don’t let them keep all of the money you worked so hard and sacrificed to save.
