I have a pension. My spouse didn’t work for It. Do I have to give up a share, and if so, how much?

The portion of the pension earned during the marriage is considered to be marital property to be divided.

In mediation, you can choose to trade off the interest in the pension for the equity in the home, or perhaps the retirement plan, or even some other asset. Or, you can choose to waive the marital interest in the pension entirely. Keep in mind, however, that pre-tax retirement dollars, and equity dollars, are not the same.
