Using A QDRO To Protect Your Retirement

A qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) is an extremely important tool that can divide retirement funds following divorce.

A QDRO defines how retirement benefits are to be transferred from one spouse to another in divorce. The order can be flexible if correctly drafted and payouts are properly ensured. Because it needs continual follow-up and safeguards, experienced counsel is extremely important in ensuring your financial well-being if you are considering a QDRO in Nashua or anywhere else in New Hampshire.

Experienced Divorce Attorneys Protecting Your Assets

We at Wolfson & Bernazzani, PLLC, have extensive experience drafting QDROs. Our attorneys can work directly with you to understand your goals and draft up documentation that is ideally suited to your unique situation.

By undertaking all necessary investigation and document review, we can help determine the portions of retirement plans that are marital and nonmarital, the former being divisible. While the division is typically 50-50 if a spouse was enrolled after the marriage, there can be complicated factors involved, including amounts earned prior to marriage.

The more subtle and nuanced these factors become, the more technical the documentation must become to reflect these issues. Because we have more than half a century of combined experience and extensive knowledge of high-asset divorce cases, there is no QDRO case for which we are not prepared. We encourage you to get in touch.
