Will I get part of my husband’s 401(k)?

When you are preparing for a divorce in Florida, one of the biggest dilemmas you may face is determining who gets what. While some forms of property may be easy to divide, there can be others that are more confusing to split. In fact, there may be some that you do not even realize you are entitled to. One of the most common of these is a 401(k) account. Forbes.com details everything you need to know about staking your claim to what you deserve.  

 

First, it is important to realize that your husband may try to hide the fact that you can have a portion of this account. In divorce, spouses who used to love and serve each other may completely change and instead focus on getting as much as possible in the settlement. Be prepared that your husband may try to convince you that you do not deserve any of his retirement savings, but this is most likely untrue.

 

Once you have prepared yourself for this, consider the other things that you may be entitled to. It may not only be the stock options that can be divided, but also any cars, boats or houses, even if your name is not on the title.

 

There may be some things that you do not have claim to. This would include anything that was purchased or received before the two of you were married, such as an inheritance, property or gifts. This information is intended to educate and should not be taken as legal advice.
