Experienced Northern Virginia Divorce Attorneys
Most retirement plans are governed by federal and state law, and require special court orders to be divided properly. Many clients do not fully understand the nature and value of their own retirement benefits, let alone their prospective interest in their spouse's benefits. Therefore, it is essential that your divorce attorney understands the complex process of filing and pursuing a claim for marital retirement benefits.
At Lieblich & Grimes, P.C., our attorneys have extensive experience representing people in Northern Virginia involved in complex family law issues. We work with men and women to identify and implement creative yet practical solutions to divorce matters, including the division of marital property and retirement benefits.
