Divorce over 50 - QDRO

One of the most important documents your lawyer will draft for you is a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (or QDRO), spelling out how retirement will be divided. The language is specific, fussy, and fundamental to approval by the pension plan administrator. Many retirement plans (for example those from the state and federal government and the military) have special rules, so it is paramount that whoever prepares your QDRO has experience with the language. It is a judicial order, and will become a part of your final divorce judgment.
