Protect Your Financial Future: QDRO Guidance

If you are getting a divorce and have retirement accounts, a knowledgeable divorce attorney can help protect your share of IRA money and other retirement assets. A qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) determines how assets are divided. It allows an alternative payee, such as an ex-spouse or child, to collect money from a participant's retirement plan account. QDROs can be complex. A lawyer highly experienced in drafting QDROs is essential to protect your best interests. Our knowledgeable divorce lawyers know Pennsylvania law and can defend your rights both in and out of the courtroom.

At Family Legal Center, LLC, we have over 30 years of combined experience preparing QDROs for valued clients. We will explain the legal requirements needed to sign the QDRO document and how this document protects your future finances. We can work to help you receive the share of retirement money you deserve.

We assist in protecting retirement assets such as:

  • 401(k)s and IRAs
  • Pension plans
  • Stock options
  • Deferred compensation

Our QDROs have included work for both private and public entities. Some of our retirement plans include:

  • City retirement plans
  • Pennsylvania State Employees' Retirement System
  • Public School Employees' Retirement System
  • Westinghouse and Bechtel

If you have substantial assets in a retirement plan, it is imperative to get a QDRO drafted and signed by the judge as soon as possible. Get started by contacting a QDRO-experienced attorney. The sooner you get the QDRO signed, the better, and we can help you do it. We can also answer questions about business ownership, hidden assets and divorce.
