Spouses need to follow procedures to split up 401K benefits

In divorces, 401K plans are treated as marital property to be split between spouses. The amount that each person receives depends on the couple's agreement and state and federal laws. The terms of 401K division should be recorded in Qualified Domestic Relations Orders, given to divorcing spouses by plan administrators. These forms need to be filled out a certain way and signed by judges and plan administrators to be valid. Attorneys on both sides should have these documents when exes plans to negotiate on 401K terms.
