Getting divorced.....question is about the 401k my husband has. He has a 401k with 182,000.00 in it. He just lost his job at the company. After splitting the assets I was to get an extra 50K to offset his 401K. Now I am being told by lawyer that because of it being tax deferred I can only get 20K due to the fact that at the present time it is not really worth the 182K....I am confused to say the least. Can anyone shead some light on this for me.
