    does anyone know anything about what happens when you get a divorce and your ex is entitled to part of your retirement on how it works? when does she get her part is it when i retire or can she get it now and also on 401k does she get it now or does she have to wait?

    Depends on so many things. Your best bet is a lawyer...........or an "accident".

    It is all negotiable but if the negotiation is she gets a % of your pension, she cannot draw until you retire.

    Of course, you can buy her out if negotiated.

    It varies by state as well.

    Most states, it is the value of the pension at the time of the divorce rather than the value at maturity.

    You know what they say...

    Why is divorce so expensive?

    Because it's worth it.

    Anyone who says, "Money can't buy happiness." Never paid for a divorce.

    I'll never get married again; I'll just find a woman I don't like and give her a house. (rim shot)
