EARNED BY A LIFE OF SERVICE
As a Washington firefighter or law enforcement officer, you risk your life everyday to keep our communities safe. You don’t do the job for a reward, you do it because you care about people. After facing so much danger and giving so much in the line of duty, you deserve to be provided for in retirement. Rightly so, you look forward to retiring one day and depending on your LEOFF benefits to support you. Unfortunately, if you are going through a divorce today, your retirement may be in jeopardy.
An Unfair Target
You gave physically and emotionally, risking your life to earn your retirement benefits. Unfortunately, your benefits under LEOFF will be an attractive target for an over reaching wife during divorce. You need to work with attorneys who understand the LEOFF program. Attorneys who know how LEOFF works, and understand how important it is. Attorneys who know how to properly calculate the actual LEOFF benefits value and how to protect it.
Protect Your Retirement
The quality of your retirement years will rest on how well your retirement benefits are protected. You cannot allow the actual present dollar value of your LEOFF benefits to be wildly over inflated and used as an overvalued offset for your wife’s claims on your other assets. You cannot allow her to claim a greater interest in your LEOFF benefits than the law allows.
At Divorce Lawyer’s For Men we believe first responders who have given so much to society deserve to enjoy the benefits of their hard work in retirement. We will aggressively protect your rights and challenge any unfair proposals presented by your wife or her attorneys. Your retirement is not a bargaining chip for a court case, it is the well deserved reward for a lifetime of dangerous service.
