Qualified Domestic Relations Orders

813 Washington Street
Waukegan, IL 60085

A Qualified Domestic Relations Order is required if a Judgment for Dissolution of Marriage calls for the transfer of a portion of one spouse's retirement plan, such as a pension or 401(k) plan, to the non-employee spouse. QDROs are complicated legal documents because they must comply with Federal and state law and, at the same time, meet the requirements of the specific plan. We prepare the necessary Orders to divide Federal pensions, military pensions, Illinois public sector employee pensions, and plans provided through private employers or unions.
