I lost my job and made very good money, separated from my wife whom practically gets all my retirement from military, I have no other source of income right now, broke except for my 401k, I have a house in another state which I'll lose money on selling right now and my wife has our home in TN which has about 50,000 or more in equity in which she is requesting the house in the divorce, I have my 401k and what money I have left in the bank is going quickly, I have no other source of income. Can I do a loan against my 401k to avoid the penalities or do they have some sort of hardship. I'm going to have to pay taxes as well I'm kind of screwed every which way. Help
