- WHY AND WHEN NEEDED
Dividing retirement benefits for a divorce requires a Qualified Domestic Relations Order from a court. A QDRO is a judgment, decree or order for a retirement plan. QDRO's apply to ERISA-qualified pension plans, including defined benefit and defined contribution plans, 401(k)s, thrift savings plans, some profit-sharing and money-purchase plans, Keoghs, tax sheltered plans, and ESOPs. Under Federal law ERISA normally prevents owners from assigning pension benefits to another person and QDRO's allows this as part of a divorce. A QDRO is a way of dividing these benefits equitably.
QDRO's - WHY WE SHOULD PREPARE
For many couples involved in a divorce the retirment or pension benefits are the asset with the most value. It is important that QDROs should always be certified by an attorney who has knowledge and expertise in the area of pension plan division. For that reason, many family law attorneys refer their clients to an attorney who is experienced in drafting QDROs.
A properly completed QDRO requires extensive and complicated paperwork that should be delegated to an experienced firm. Working with QDRO Headquarters you will receive a thorough, professional, and properly completed QDRO.
