Generally speaking, it is always wise to not co-mingle the various types of "deferred" monies one might receive, e.g. 401(k) vs. IRA vs. 403(b) vs. profit sharing & so forth. However, some combinations are permitted with no problem, some are permitted but cause problems & some are not permitted. However, all of these rules are tax based in their origin.

On the other hand, whether or not one has co-mingled some deferred funds has nothing to do with whether or not those funds are "attachable" to satisfy a demand court order. Which assets are attachable and which are not is governed by state statute, in the case of a state proceeding and governed by federal statute (not tax statutes) in the case of a federal suit. O.J.'s case was a state suit, thus governed by California statute which may or may not be similar to your state of domicle.
