Understanding the Importance and Process of QDRO
A wide range of matters come up for discussion when you are going through a divorce. The foremost issues you have to deal with include division of assets, child custody, and alimony. When it comes to dividing assets, you also have to take into account long-term assets, i.e. retirement accounts and how they will be dealt with in the divorce agreement. In certain cases, retirement accounts are attached to child support or alimony. Regardless of the situation and your viewpoint, it is important that you consult an experienced QDRO attorney.
A Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) is a document that ratifies your decision to distribute your retirement account or receives a share of your partner’s retirement accounts. Many people going through a divorce are unfamiliar with QDROs. This is why you need to consult an experienced attorney to determine how your assets will be divided.
