– from Jose G. in Hales Corners, WI
I have been married for nearly a decade. I’ve been employed by the same company for nearly 20 years. I work in the packaging industry. I had 10 years toward my pension before I was married. My wife and I are now beginning our divorce, but we cannot seem to agree on a lot of things. One of them is my pension. She believes she is entitled to half of the pension. I believe she is only entitled to half of the accumulated amount during our marriage. Is my pension attributed to work before my marriage divisible?
