Qualified Domestic Relations Orders are merely a way to move 401k or similar tax deferred money from one spouse to another in divorce cases. The transfer of funds must be stated in the Final Decree; however the QDRO can only be processed after the Final Decree has been issued. Our law firm has been preparing QDRO’s for over a decade with a mission for fast and smooth transfer of retirement assets.
When you first meet with the firm’s attorney, Cara Sprouse Rowe, she will explain the process and discuss different options. Then we will begin building your case as we gather information from you about your situation.
How the above issues are decided depends entirely on each unique situation. For example, factors such as adultery, domestic violence or cruel treatment could be considered in deciding how to divide marital assets.
