How does the division of 401(k) and IRA accounts work in a Texas divorce? We ask attorney Jillian French in this Ask The Lawyers Quick Question.
For 401(k), those are typically gonna be referred to as qualified plans, and so those would be divided through what's called a Qualified Domestic Relations Order. For IRAs, those are typically divided through the divorce decree, and then most of them require a copy of the divorce decree, and then, additionally, a form, typically something that the plan themselves creates, and then they want the form to be filled out with a copy of the decree.
