Qdro


#1

My ex husband I have finally agreed on a settlement. Ho do I obtain the paperwork necessary for a QDRO? Do I fill them in and then give themto the clerk for the Judge to sign? How does that work and what is the timeline for that?


#2

The QDRO needs to be drafted and signed by each party and then entered by the court and sent to the plan for formal qualification. You should request a sample QDRO from the plan before moving forward and trying to draft in on your own.

My Plan does not have a sample to use, so I have payed for one and have drafted the QDRO; am planning on signing this afternoon with ex.

Q#1. Do our signatures need to be notorized?
Q.#2. Is there a hearing set in this matter or is just signed off by the clerk?

Yes, they will need to be notarized, and yes a judge will have to sign it. Set a hearing to have the judge enter the QDRO. Drafting QRDOs can be tricky and I strongly recommend you meet with and attorney before entering into a QDRO.
