What is a QDRO?
Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) is a court order which dictates how retirement benefits are divided and paid to respective spouses in a divorce. Because of strict filing requirements by federal law guidelines detailed by REA (Retirement Equity Act) and ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act), state domestic relations law and differing plan requirements, and issues such as survivor benefits, cost of living, and early retirement, many attorneys find drafting a QDRO to be a difficult, time-consuming and frustrating process.
In addition, there are other court orders (MCO's, COAP's DRO's, etc.) for plans not subject to ERISA, such as military, federal civil service, state, local, and teachers’ orders, which can provide their own set of challenges. PAC has drafted thousands of QDRO's for all kinds of plans. We offer you our services, based on our knowledge and experience. Please review the QDRO flowchart in our Learn About Pensions section to see some of the complex issues we handle, depending on state law and the particular system in question.
Our standard QDRO or equivalent Court Order such as MCO, DRO, COAP, or ADRO. fee is $440. The discounted fee for each additional Order for the same case is $420. Plan revisions are included in our fees, as no extra charge.
