Tips for dividing retirement accounts during divorce

When a couple in California decides to get a divorce, they will probably need to divide their property. This might include a retirement account that was originally intended to cover both spouses. Depending on the sort of account, the division process may be simple or more complex.

However, couples that have prenups often incorrectly believe that the document is immune to a legal challenge. This simply isn't so.
