Using A QDRO To Protect Your Retirement

A qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) is an extremely important tool that can divide retirement funds following divorce.

A QDRO defines how retirement benefits are to be transferred from one spouse to another in divorce. If drafted correctly, the order can be flexible and payouts properly ensured. Because a QDRO requires continual follow-up and safeguards, to ensure your financial well-being, it is extremely important to retain experienced counsel.

Experienced Divorce Attorneys Protecting Your Assets

The attorneys at Wolfson & Bernazzani, PLLC, have extensive experience in drafting QDROs. We work directly with you to understand your goals and draft documentation that is ideally suited to your unique situation.

By undertaking all necessary investigation and document review, we can help determine the portions of retirement plans that are marital and nonmarital, the former being divisible. While the division is typically 50-50 if a spouse was enrolled after the marriage, there can be complicated factors involved, including amounts earned prior to marriage.

The more subtle and nuanced these factors become, the more technical the documentation must become to reflect these issues. Because we have more than half a century of combined experience and extensive knowledge of high-asset divorce cases, there is no QDRO case for which we are not prepared. We encourage you to get in touch.
