Abstract: Often, when married couples divorce, retirement plans are among their largest assets. Valuing and dividing these assets can be a challenge, especially when one spouse began participating in the plan before marriage. This article explains how a financial expert with valuation and forensic accounting experience can assist divorcing couples in valuing retirement plan assets and determining the extent to which contributions, earnings, distributions and loans constitute separate or marital property.
