topic is covered in your
divorce proceeding. Call our Murrieta

How Does a QDRO Work?
Most retirement plans require Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO)
to "give direction" as to exactly how one spouse's retirement
must be divided. In the property divisions of a judgment, the court may
order part of one spouse's retirement or pension be divided and awarded
to the other spouse. This can either be a fixed dollar amount or is based
on a percent share over the lifetime of the plan. A QDRO must be precise
in the order and approved by all parties including the plan administration
before the court will enter it as an order.
At The Grey Legal Group, APC, we can handle a wide range of QDROs for pension and retirement plans,
- Private pension plans
- Corporate pension plans
