State I reside in: Virginia
How long does a former spouse have to set up an account to take half a 401k from divorce settlement? The divorce has been final for over 6 months and after being reminded at the entering of the final decree, it has still not been done. I would like to take my half and put it somewhere else and know at what point it all belongs to me. I realize it has not been long enough yet, but does anyone know how long I have to wait?
