What can be done if my ex still hasn't sent me my share of the 401K? 2 Answers as of June 19, 2017

I was divorced in 2008 and was supposed to receive half of my wife's 401K. Is there a statute of limitations on how long I can go after her for it? What do I do if she took the money and spent it? Assuming she still has it, am I entitled to interest on the amount she owed me in 2008?

Get a lawyer and file papers with the court. You need a document called a QDRO.

Just because she hasn't paid your interest (assuming this is a court order), you are still entitled to the amount. Give her a demand letter and tell her if she doesn't pay you within a certain period of time, then return to court on a request for order for enforcement. Please meet with an experienced family law attorney to explore your options.
