Northern Virginia Spousal Retirement Benefits Lawyers
During a divorce, the spouses often want to consider all sources of income in the property division proceeding. While nearly all of them are on the table, Social Security benefits stand out as one income source that is maintained solely as separate property by the spouse who earned it. The court has no authority to distribute them.

We have successfully represented clients throughout northern Virginia in a broad range of these cases. If you have concerns over what will happen to your Social Security benefits after your divorce, we encourage you to talk to one of our attorneys.
We understand that these issues can be difficult to understand. When you hire our firm, we will take the time to conduct a complete review of your case and make sure that all of your questions have been answered so that you have the information you need as you move forward.
Eligibility for Social Security Benefits After Divorce
We also advise many clients about their eligibility for Social Security benefits after a divorce. There is a multitude of misinformation about this topic. Our attorneys will help you understand your rights and work to ensure that you receive the benefits you are entitled to by law.
Some people mistakenly believe that they are not eligible for Social Security benefits after a divorce because they have been stay-at-home parents who have not been paying into Social Security. In many cases, these people may be eligible for benefits based on their former spouse’s earnings record.
There are certain criteria that will need to be met before you can begin receiving benefits, including reaching retirement age. In addition, your marital status and other factors can also impact the benefits you may be able to seek.
