Greetings. Pensions are divided through QDROs (Qualified Domestic Relations Orders) which specify the percentage of the pension which the other spouse shall receive. We generally use the Seifert formula (named after a famous case) which looks at the number of months the parties were married, the number of months the employee worked at the firm, etc.
IRAs also are often distributed through QDROs, but some can simply be rolled over with a properly drafted separation agreement. The bottom line is that your attorney will need to draft the division language (including percentages or set amounts) into the separation agreement for you and then draft the QDROs. Best of luck.
