A Qualified Domestic Relations Order, also known as a QDRO or DRO, is an Order that completes a division and apportionment of marital interest in the former spouse's retirement funds (ex. IRA, 401(k), Pension Plan), pursuant to the language set forth in the Decree of Dissolution. I will prepare the initial draft for review by employer, and also a revision of the QDRO if the employer requests changes or recommendations, and I will file with the Court after both parties have signed. The employer will then need to have a certified copy of this QDRO after it has been approved by the Court.
