If you reside in Western Washington, feel free to call me to schedule a free initial consultation-either in person or by phone-about your situation. The short answer is that it depends on what the 401K amount was at the time of marriage, among other factors.

You can get a fair and equitable division of all your assets and debts. So you might get some, most, all or none of any particular asset depending on what else you're getting, your financial futures and anything else that effects what is fair and reasonable.

In Washington State, the Court divides assets/liabilities "fairly and equitably." Based on many factors, the amount of the 401k you will receive may be more or less than 50%.
