Financially Savvy Divorce Attorneys in Springfield, Virginia

For many people facing divorce, division of pensions and retirement accounts are critical issues. For decades, the attorneys of Becker, Kellogg & Berry, P.C., have been a trusted resource for men and women who need to understand their legal rights and prepare for life after divorce.

We counsel and represent military personnel, government employees, retirees and their spouses — as well as people with privately administered 401(k) and 403 (b) plans and other qualified retirement accounts. We do not entrust calculations and evaluations in this vital area to paralegals or outside resources, contact us for experienced, hands-on representation.

Informed and Active in Dividing Public or Private Benefits

If the pension and retirement benefits that concern your family are administered through a government plan, proper division may require very specific application of formulas and precise language in the agreement and in the pension and retirement fund division order. Dividing private accounts will require working closely and effectively with the employer's benefit office and/or the plan administrator.

Our law firm fully recognizes how important it can be to set clear expectations about pensions and retirement accounts as you work out other aspects of a marital property settlement. We are experienced in dealing with:

  • Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS), Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS), and Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) accounts and benefits
  • All aspects of military families' pensions and other benefits
  • Preparation and execution of pension and retirement fund division orders such as Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs), Approved Domestic Relations Orders (ADROs) and Court Orders Acceptable for Processing (COAPs)
  • Other complex benefits, including stock options and deferred compensation, commonly provided to high-ranking executives and company shareholders

Your financial future may depend on the proper, legal division of retirement accounts and government and retirement benefits. For many families today, these pension and retirement assets exceed the value of their homes and other property. To discuss these and other key issues in your divorce with a proven lawyer, please contact us today.
