Plan Asset Division upon Dissolution of Marriage

Often a retirement plan right is the largest asset owned by a married couple. When a couple decides to part ways, federal law prevents many plans from distributing assets to either spouse until a Qualified Domestic Relations Order is approved by the plan and issued by the cout.

For individuals, we prepare documents and a court order compliant with the law. This then allows for plan approval and the issuance of a court order determining a division of property that will permit the distribution of plan assets. For employers, we review documents presented by employees to assure they meet the plan and law requirements
