Dealing with retirement accounts during property division

When Virginia spouses choose to divorce, property division can be a complex and important part of the process. After all, the financial consequences of the end of a marriage often linger for some time after the emotional and practical issues have been dealt with. For many married couples, retirement funds are often some of the largest assets they own -- even more valuable than the marital home or other real estate. Many couples may have multiple accounts, including employment-based plans as well as private Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs). All of them are typically subject to distribution during a divorce, regardless of the name on any particular account.

Evidence may be considered hearsay

In-court testimony that includes statements made outside of court may be considered hearsay. Generally speaking, hearsay evidence is not admitted in cases that take place in Virginia or other states. However, there are scenarios in which it may be allowed to be heard and considered by a jury. For instance, if a person made a statement to a medical professional at the scene of a crash or some other crime scene, that information could be used in a legal proceeding.
