FAQ About Pension Plans And Divorce

If you are currently facing a divorce that involves complicated assets like pension plans, you need the experienced guidance of Thomas C. Rowsey to help assist you through the process. He will help you evaluate your options and help protect your financial future as well. He proudly serves individuals from communities in Georgia throughout Fulton, DeKalb, and Cobb Counties.

When it comes to pension plans and divorce, there are some frequently asked questions that we’d like to discuss to help you understand how it might affect you.

Is there one, set in stone, method of determining how much I will get?
The process for dividing pension plan assets is very subjective and each case is taken into consideration. In Georgia, marital assets are divided “equitably” between the spouses in divorce. Equitable does not mean, “equal” but “fair.”
How is my pension plan viewed, as a whole, or only during the time of our marriage?
Your pension plan is viewed like your other properties. If your pension plan accrued during your marriage, then they are eligible for equal division. If your pension plan accrued before your marriage it will be considered separate property.
What is a QDRO?
A QDRO is a Qualified Domestic Relations Order. It is a legal order that is approved by the plan administrator that will split and change the ownership of a retirement plan in accordance with the final order.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
