Although I can only give you an opinion, I think the answer to your question is to be negotiated during the divorce proceedings. Depending on what you give up, you might be willing to keep all of your pension but that should be a question best addressed by your divorce attorney. If there are significant assets involved, please I repeat please hire a good attorney who can give you the necessary guidance you require. As another possibility, check with the fee-only financial planning organization called NAPFA and see if they have planners who specialize in divorce work, which they do. This may turn out to be a lot cheaper than hiring an attorney although one will be needed at a future point in time hope this helps and good luck.
