Hi. My stbx and I are currently working back and forth on a separation agreement. Originally I was not going to claim half of his 401k (even though I realize I’m entitled to it per NC law) but have since re-thought the situation and plan to include that in the agreement.
My first question is, if that is in the agreement, what additional paperwork, if any, needs to be included to insure that I receive the amount due me?
My second question is what if, during our discussion over the agreement before it is signed, he were to go in and start withdrawing money from his 401k account so that when the agreement is signed there is little/nothing left in the account?
Thank you for your help.
