What happens to retirement funds and 401(k) plans in a divorce?

In Florida there's a presumption that the equitable distribution would be a 50/50 split of all the assets and liabilities that were acquired after the date of marriage and before the date of filing for divorce. Therefore anything that was acquired including 401(k) and retirement accounts would be divided in half. Now if only a portion of those assets were acquired during the marriage then a calculation will be used to determine what the marital portion of those assets are.
