Retirement


#1

Dear Brownjam:

Greetings. There is a lot more information which I need to answer this question. Lenght of marriage? Difference in income? Generally, the answer is “yes” she is entitled to half of your retirement. Nevertheless, she may also owe you alimony if she makes more funds. Best of luck.

The marriage has lasted about 30 years. The last time I was going to leave, she showed up pregant. The child is now 18. I have two other children from my first marriage. Last year I made $25000 and she made $49000.

Dear Brownjam:

Greetings again. You are not going to like this, but once again, I do not have enough information. Prior to making any estimation on what will happen to a party’s assets I usually listen to them tell me about the marriage, detail all their assets, and then tell them what I think the options are. You have the ability to ask for alimony, but generally pensions are divided equally. Best of luck and let us know if we can help.
