Divorce Involving Retirement Funds And Employment Benefits

Regardless Of Your Age, Protecting Your Retirement Money Is Vital

In the U.S. government's uncertain economic situation, the odds are high that many younger adults will never receive Social Security benefits when they reach retirement age. In addition, many people no longer have equity in their homes after the 2008 housing crash.

This means that the money you have in your 401(k), IRA and other retirement accounts is one of your greatest assets. It also means that it is critical to protect your money and benefits during divorce in order to safeguard your future.

At The Law Office of Joseph Ellis Thompson, PLLC, in Tulsa, we assist clients throughout the neighboring cities of Oklahoma with the division of retirement funds and employment benefits during divorce. With decades of combined legal experience in both small- and large-firm settings, we are well positioned to handle divorces involving:
