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,
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
