Early withdrawal.

Many retirement accounts such as a 401(k) involve funds matching through an employer and a set date when the funds can be accessed. Withdrawing these assets before the access date is costly, and both parties can be subject to penalties or increased taxes for early withdrawal. An attorney can advise you on how best to avoid early-withdrawal penalties and tax consequences.

Individual provisions.

Pension and retirement plans have a number of provisions and exceptions that must be addressed during a divorce. For instance, an ex-spouse may lose his or her rights to survivor benefits if a partner dies before retirement. An attorney should calculate the additional cost for life insurance for former spouses, as well as the value of the lost benefit.
