Experienced Lawyers For Pension Division

Dividing property in a divorce can be a complicated and stressful process. This process can be especially challenging if you own complex marital assets such as pensions. Here in Rhode Island, pensions are treated as marital property, allowing spouses to divide them during the divorce process. The decisions you make when dividing your pension will have a long-term financial impact. It pays to work with an attorney who has experience with pensions and divorce.

At Moore, Virgadamo & Lynch, Ltd., our family law attorneys can help you avoid any negative financial consequences when you divide your pension. In most cases, we can do this by filing a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO). This legal document ensures that both spouses can receive a portion of the benefits from the pension. A QDRO allows spouses to divide their property more efficiently and equitably. You can schedule your free consultation now by calling 401-846-0120.

Dividing Your Military Pension

In particular, pensions earned in the armed forces must be divided according to special federal laws.
