Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO)

Drafting Professional Legal Documents

A Qualified Domestic Relations Order, or QDRO, is often required in order for retirement benefits to be disbursed to another individual. This can include a former spouse, child or other dependent. It is an essential part of the legal process and when you require one, it is imperative that it is created quickly and covers all of the necessary information.

An attorney can quickly draft such a document and at Floyd Leopard, LLP, we are well-versed on the procedures and policies required to do so. This allows you to get the document quickly so you can pursue the necessary actions.

Protect What's Yours

It is up to you to protect what is yours and therefore you need to be involved in the QDRO process. If it is your retirement account, you want to read through the fine print of the orders to be sure that only what has been court-ordered is coming out of the account. Similarly, if you are the one who will be receiving the funds, then the amount also needs to match.

The complexities need to be determined early on to streamline the process. Having a knowledgeable attorney at your side can reduce the amount of time involved to create the QDRO. Once drafted, it can then be forwarded to the holder(s) of the retirement account(s) so that the funds can be disbursed. This will allow you to put the situation in the past and move forward with your life.
