Divorce doesn't have to ruin retirement

Saving for retirement is important, but stashing money away in a 401(k) account is not the only way to create financial security for the future. In Alaska, it is fairly common to also rely on Social Security benefits, which help bridge the gap between what a person has managed to save, and his or her actual living expenses. But divorce can change those plans. Here's how to protect retirement money even after ending a marriage.

Pet nup is a new term in family law

When one thinks of family, parents, children and grandparents often come to mind. Increasingly, that picture includes family pets as integral members of the familial unit in Alaska. As such, if a divorce is contemplated, not only may child custody become an issue, but pet custody as well. To help accommodate the issue, a new term is becoming familiar in family law.

Can you keep your full 401k in your divorce?

Your divorce proceedings in Anchorage are sure to be a challenge. Even if you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse go into them having gotten over any bitterness associated with your separation, there will almost certainly be points where the two of you disagree. Both of you being willing to make concessions is the key to ensuring that your proceedings move smoothly and avoid costly delays. Yet one area where you may not be prepared to concede anything is in the division of your 401k.

When your spouse wants to keep the house

If you are like a lot of people who live in Alaska and who own a home, your property may be the most valuable asset in your estate. This is one of the reasons that makes it hard to know what to do with a home when you get divorced. In addition to the financial aspect of home ownership, there tends to be a high level of emotional attachment to a person's family home. For this reason, many people work hard to try and keep their house when they get divorced.
