my stbx has 3 retirement counts. 2 accts were earned during our marraige. can i assume those will be split between us? the 3rd account is the big question i have. all of it was earned while we have been together and living together. the last payment into this account was 1yr after we were married. after that he switched trades. this account continues to grow. will this account also be considered to be split?
these accts are quite substantial(in my opinion) and together would probably(i have to find the current balances) be close to equaling the balance of the mortgage.
i have no retirement. we withdrew my small acct last yr to pay on some dept and used some for atty for stepd's case.
does the time we lived together before we were married count for anything? we had a joint bank account, shared bills, lived on my income when he was unemployed,etc.
as of this coming november we would have been together 14 yrs, lived together the last 12, married the last 8.
i also posted this in the financial forum, didn't see this one till already posted.
