My question involves a marriage in the state of:North Carolina
My husband and i are doing an uncontested divorce and got all our paperwork through legal zoom. All necessary papers have been signed, notarized and filed at the courthouse and we are just waiting for court date for judge to issue decree . We have lived apart 10 years, and all property split except, we have one 401 acct we didnt account for in the filing , mainly because this is a very friendly divorce and we were just going to divide ourselves but the plan administrator wont do it without the QDRO. The clerk at the courthouse says I can file an “amended complaint” with a QDRO and get a new courtdate to finalize divorce and the split of this money
Do we have to have an attorney prepare this QDRO?
Which party gets the QDRO initiated, I am the plaintiff but my husband has the account from his old job. Does he initiate this, or do I. Must there be an attorney involved? they cost money, and we arent fighting over it, we just want to split it and get divorced.
Will the judge sign this QDRO during my uncontested court date that finalizes divorce, or does this require a separate hearing?
