Protecting your retirement assets during divorce

Your retirement benefits may be one of your most valuable assets. If you are going through a divorce, the process of dividing the parties' retirement benefits can be very complex. You need a qualified QDRO attorney to protect your rights and interests, while taking a hands-on approach to guiding you through the QDRO process.



A qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) is a legal document that tells retirement plan distributors to give a portion of an employee's retirement assets to a former spouse following a divorce. In California, a QDRO can also be used to collect unpaid child support, alimony, or to divide property rights.


Without a QDRO, you may not be legally entitled to a portion of your spouse's retirement benefits. Without our knowledge or experience working for you, you may miss out on some benefits you are entitled to.

What is QDRO

If you, or your spouse (or former spouse) have retirement assets, both of you have certain rights to benefits under the other's retirement plan. In order for you to receive these benefits, a QDRO must be written and processed.


If you find yourself getting separated, divorced, or you're already divorced, you need to set up a QDRO as soon as possible. Many people wait too long, and end up losing assets due to changes in the market. With us, you can be assured that we can promptly prepare and process your QDRO, and in many cases, you can receive your benefits before your divorce is finalized.
