North Shore, Massachusetts, Retirement Account Division Lawyer


Divorce in Massachusetts frequently leads to a massive loss of wealth and income. Alimony payments in our state are frequently long term or permanent and, when dividing retirement accounts, pensions and savings accounts, a misstep can lead to the preventable loss of thousands of dollars.

I am Boston retirement account division attorney Annette L. Baker, and I have helped hundreds of clients protect their interests when dividing 401(k) accounts and other accounts during a divorce. I help clients get the "biggest slice" of assets possible during a divorce. I can use my years of experience and legal knowledge to raise and address important options and questions such as:

  • How do you determine the value and future value of a defined benefit plan/defined contribution plan?
  • What are parties' life expectancies and how will they affect asset division?
  • Will a buyout of accounts save money over splitting the accounts?
  • What are the tax implications of various division options?
  • Is it necessary and does it make sense to liquidate a 401(k) account?

I can quickly clear up confusion and then formulate a strategic plan to enhance your share of retirement accounts and other property.

How Can You Enhance Your Rights When There Are a Dozen Ways to Value an Asset?

Often, there are numerous ways to determine the value and future value of retirement accounts. I work with tax attorneys, actuaries and other professionals to determine the value of financial accounts down the road. I am familiar with all types of retirement accounts, from conventional 401(k), IRA and pension accounts to teachers' 403(b) and military retirement accounts. For more information, please contact me.
