My ex is getting an attorney to help him fill out a QDRO so he can obtain his share of my 401K. Fidelity has a good site that assists in getting the QDRO formatted, and even produces a copy of the order to be presented in court. My question is this: is my attorney expected to attend court when this QDRO is filed? (remember, it’s my ex that’s getting the QDRO filed). Frankly, I don’t want to have to pay my atty to show up for court, when the document is not being contested. (By the way, this will occur in Alamance County).
I just don’t know what the procedure is for getting the QDRO signed.
