Working with a knowledgeable financial adviser through this time can provide you with insight into the long-term implications of these decisions.
For many divorcing couples the most difficult decisions, after settling custody issues, are the financial decisions that they have to face. Here the questions have to do with which assets go to which ex-spouse.
Is it better that one take IRAs and company retirement plans while the other take other assets? If one ex-spouse is to take ownership of the other’s IRA or company retirement plan, the transactions must be done according to the terms of the court and should be handled in such a way as to avoid unnecessary taxes.
The rules are complex and mistakes can be very costly, requiring the guidance from dedicated professions like Bob Foland.
