Divorce and Pension and Retirement Benefits in Texas

At the Vaught Law Firm, our experienced lawyers utilize every available advantage to ensure our clients are treated fairly in divorce. This includes all-too-often overlooked assets such as pensions and other sources of benefits.

Whether you have modest assets or are involved in a high asset divorce, we recognize this is one of the most stressful times in your life, so we give you and your case the time and attention you need. From sitting down with you and giving you direct answers to your questions, to conducting in-depth investigations to make certain benefit packages and all other assets are accounted for, you will have one of our trusted attorneys with you at every stage of your case.

Although some issues in a divorce, such as child support, can be modified at a later date, benefits cannot. If you do not obtain your share of pensions and retirement benefits before your divorce is finalized, your right to them is gone forever. Pensions and retirement benefits are assets not easily replaced, especially when you face divorce later in life. We work hard to ensure this does not happen to you, and you receive a fair division of the community pension and retirement benefits package.
