A Qualified Domestic Relations Order (“QDRO”) is a key element in the division of marital assets in divorce. Part of the post-divorce process, QDROs can result in costly mistakes when mishandled. 
Attorneys from the preeminent national boutique law firm of The Wagner Law Group, P.C., which specializes in ERISA and other retirement benefits, will provide you with detailed information. You will learn: why retirement plans are treated differently from other assets; which retirement plans require a QDRO and which do not; what language you should have in the divorce agreement or judgment; and how to successfully achieve the intended result. You will also hear from Karen Dean-Smith, Esq., who was among the first in the country to raise the issue of including a defined benefit plan as part of the equitable division of the marital estate. 

Recorded in February 2024.
