Asset Protection Lawyers in Hershey
Outside of the home and other real property, the single biggest asset that most couples have to divide upon divorce are retirement benefits. While it may seem like the spouse who worked and contributed to the retirement plan should be entitled to its full amount, this is not necessarily true.

If you are going through a divorce and are curious how a retirement plan is to be divided, we can help. Contact us online or call 717-260-3485 to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your situation in either Harrisburg or Hershey.
Handling the Division of All Retirement Assets
Retirement assets can encompass many different types of plans. In Pennsylvania, these plans will be divided equitably, which means fairly, not necessarily equally. Our experienced Harrisburg and Hershey property division lawyers can help with the split of all types of retirement plans, including:
- State Employment Retirement System (SERS) benefits
In addition to helping with division of state and private employee retirement plans, we can also assist in the division of plans for federal government workers. Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of federal law to ensure that your interests are well represented. We also help military families with the division of military pensions and other benefits.
Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs)
In order to receive an equitable share of retirement assets, it is usually necessary to get a court to enter a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO). The lawyers at Purcell, Krug & Haller can walk you through this process to ensure that you get your fair share of retirement benefits.
