Get help finding the Right Family Law Lawyer for your case
A Qualified Domestic Relation Order (QDRO) is an approved order made under family law and property law that regulates the terms of child support, alimony payments, or marital property rights during a divorce. A QDRO is a document required in many divorces by federal law.
QDROs are very technical and have many complex requirements. A QDRO is required so that a spouse can receive their share of the former spouse's retirement benefits. It is advised to have a QDRO organized by a family lawyer because unless it meets the federal requirements and it is approved by a court, it is deemed invalid.
During a divorce, a family lawyer can prepares and reviews all Qualified Domestic Relations Order court documents that are required in order to transfer pension plan benefits and retirement accounts from one spouse to the other. A family lawyer can prepare the QDRO, get a judge's signature, file the QDRO during a divorce proceeding and ensure that the pension plan administrator will implement the QDRO.
