As a previous post on this blog discussed, sometimes getting through a negotiation about one's retirement benefits is only half the battle when it comes to dividing up property after a divorce or separation.
One of the most valuable assets that a Dayton, Ohio, couple may have between them is their respective retirement plans, such as 401(k)s, pensions and the like. Those who regularly contribute to these plans can amass tens of thousands of dollars as they get closer and closer to retirement.
