Retirement Asset Protection


At Mowery Youell & Galeano, Ltd., our family law attorneys recognize that most of our clients have a retirement plan in place. They have worked with a financial planner, accumulated retirement assets and intend to stop working at a certain age and enjoy their retirement. Divorce and other family law issues can pose a serious threat to these plans.

Our law firm offers a unique service: We can use our more than 30 years of experience to help clients take proactive steps to protect retirement accounts. There is no need to wait until the threat of divorce arises to take these steps. We can create a retirement asset protection strategy at any time, even before a marriage takes place. Our goal is to see that the money you have saved to live comfortably after you have finished your career does not fall into the hands of an ex, forcing you to work longer than intended.

Similarly, we recognize that there are spouses going through a divorce who, rather than pursuing a career, focused on raising children and caring for the family. They want to know that they will not have to work for the rest of their lives. Our Dublin retirement asset lawyers are dedicated to making the lives of our clients as comfortable as possible.

How Retirement Assets Are Protected

Protection of retirement assets requires knowledge of separate property. It also requires knowledge of the wide range of retirement assets that our clients may own and the features of those assets. This includes not only the traditional 401(k)s, but also 403(b)s, 457(f)s and all varieties of qualified retirement accounts and non-qualified retirement accounts. We understand how to value and protect all of these retirement assets.
