A QDRO (or Qualified Domestic Relations Order) is the legal document that divides up a qualified pension or retirement account including 401(k)s and other such assets pursuant to a divorce. The judgment of divorce is not sufficient to divide up qualified plans; a QDRO is needed. There are many nuances that go into a QDRO and make it an advocating (versus neutral) document. In order to protect your assets, be sure to obtain qualified advice in this area from an experienced QDRO attorney.
