The husband hired an attorney and had all the divorce paperworks completed. It was uncontested so they are still in the process of negotiating before finally filing it in court. In the process the husband filed an application to cash out one of his 401K plans. The wife had stated on the decree that she will claim 50% of all his 401K plans. If the husband gets his 401K money, can the wife still get it back once the divorce has been finalized? Can the wife call the plan administrator to inform them about it or at least put it on record that they are in the process of divorcing? Can the wife do something to stop her husband from getting the money?
