Jurisdiction - Family Law, County of Contra Costa, CALIF
Two IRA Accounts (valuation @ 12/06 approx $40K.
My counsel (Petitioner) will not support my desire to value @ separation. Claims Calif law establishes valuation closest to decree date.
These accounts have suffered loss in value 60% effective today, and decree is not forthcoming anytime soon. Judge is new to family law and not familiar with this area.
These two accounts were left out of equaliztion of assets, but are listed in MSA to be QDRO'd. There are offset monies I presently owe because of this. I contend that the date of separation should pevail, not the decree date, and further that I do not share in gains or losses.
My research finds conflict of position on both sides of issue, but not supporting case law.
