Case: Hired by the Wife to complete the QDRO due to the fact her now ex-husband died before reaching retirement. The original QDRO that had been presented to the company was rejected and a final, revised version was never submitted by the original attorney before the Husband passed away.
Result: We consulted with the original attorney to reach a resolution. We drafted an Order that was acceptable to the Plan, and the division was made so our client could receive her portion of those retirement funds. We also assisted our client in understanding the issues with regard to the potential rights of the ex-husband’s heirs and the company’s duty to all parties involved.
