Under Texas law, the full value of the money in a 401(k), IRA or other qualified retirement fund will be considered marital property and taken into consideration for equitable distribution between the parties.
Some couples' retirement accounts may involve separate assets that were invested by one of the parties prior to the start of the marriage. Full and accurate valuation and equitable distribution in a property settlement require experience and knowledge of the proper professional resources to turn to for help.
If you reside in the Houston metro area and are concerned about protecting your financial interests in your pending divorce property settlement, call my office. I represent people in divorce and other family law matters in Harris County, Fort Bend County and Brazoria County, Texas.
