401 (K) and Pension Plan Attorney

401(k) Plans and Pensions

Under Louisiana law, most retirement benefits that have accrued or become vested during the marriage are community property and therefore held with equal interest by both parties. Louisiana provides two different mechanisms for allocation of these assets to one party or another during a divorce proceeding. Each method has relative merits depending on the situation.

Lack of competent legal support during the division of retirement assets can cause great damage to your financial stability now and in the future. For more than 28 years, in St. Tammany Parish, Washington Parish and in the New Orleans’ area divorce petitioners have turned to Stephen Rue to help the select the appropriate approach to asset distribution and preserve as much of their retirement assets as is legally possible.
