Consultation Services For Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs)
Poorly written domestic relations orders dividing retirement benefits often lead to litigation. We partner with other family law attorneys to help avoid future litigation in the client’s division of retirement benefits by offering services related to qualified domestic relations orders, or QDROs. This includes drafting language, plan document review, and communicating with plan administrators about the QDROs. We consult with the attorneys representing clients through the divorce process; we do not represent individuals. Our rates are reasonable and we will work with your schedule as much as possible.
Why Hire An ERISA Attorney For Your QDRO Needs?
Qualified Domestic Relations Orders are highly technical documents which must meet stringent requirements set out in ERISA and the relevant plan documents. Failure to understand these requirements could have a significant impact on your client’s ability to receive retirement benefits in the future. Outsourcing this makes sense for many family law attorneys who may not feel they have the time to handle these issues effectively. Hiring an attorney who understands ERISA and stays abreast of retirement benefit litigation allows you to feel assured that your client will not miss out on important retirement benefits after divorce.
