*Please note, we require full payment upfront in order to begin work.

*Our services include drafting the QDRO, copying all parties and respective counsel on the draft QDRO(s), overseeing the pre-approval process with the Plan Administrator (when offered by the Plan Administrator) and making any revisions that may be required to the QDRO to achieve acceptance from the Retirement Plan Administrator. Our fees include all mailing costs and all communications with the parties and/or their attorneys.

*Once approved by the Plan, you or your attorney will be responsible for filing the QDRO with the Court and submitting the Court-Certified QDRO to the Retirement Plan for implementation. We provide a letter of instruction for filing the QDRO, but as we are not attorneys, we cannot file the QDRO on the parties’ behalf.
