Passionately Fighting for Your Rights

Other than a home, a retirement account can be the largest asset in a marriage. Nonetheless, retirement plan accounts are often forgotten or overlooked during a divorce and can occur years before retirement. Even though a retirement plan account is only in one spouse’s name, they are joint or marital community assets that are subject to division between the spouses in a divorce. If they are overlooked in the divorce, a spouse could neglect a significant portion of the marital assets and put themselves at risk of economic insecurity in retirement. A Qualified Domestic Relations Order (“QDRO”), is a tax-qualified order to divide a retirement account, such as a pension, 401(k), military or government retirement, or 403(b).

In addition to dividing property between spouses in a divorce, a QDRO can also be used to provide or fund child support and spousal maintenance (alimony).
