QDRO INFORMATION FORM
At Troy Legal, P.A. we will prepare and review court documents that are needed to transfer pension plan benefits and retirement accounts from one spouse to the other because of a divorce. This specific type of court document is commonly referred to as a QDRO. “QDRO” is an abbreviation for “qualified domestic relations order.” For a flat fee in most cases, the Firm prepares the QDRO, receives approval from the plan administrator for your attorney to file the QDRO with the court and obtains acknowledgment from the pension plan administrator that the QDRO will be properly implemented.
We work with all types of pension plans and retirement accounts including but not limited to: 401(k) plans, profit sharing plans, Keogh plans, 403(b) plans, tax-deferred annuities, 457 plans, deferred compensation plans, non-qualified plans, ESOPs, traditional defined benefit pension plans, cash balance plans, military retirement, federal civil service pensions (including CSRS and FERS), federal thrift savings plan, state civil service pensions labor union worker pension plans, and all types of IRAs.
