Retirement funds can be primary concern in divorce

Many couples in Wisconsin who decide to divorce have discovered that untangling their financial lives is even more complex than separating their personal and emotional ones. Retirement funds are often the largest asset that belongs to a couple's marital property, and the distribution of these funds during a divorce settlement can be difficult and challenging, especially when both parties are dependent on these accounts for their future financial stability.

Reasons for failing to make payments may range from a simple inability to pay to a belief that the amount is too high.

This means having a clear understanding of what that person needs out of a settlement.
