Quite often the retirement benefits are the most valuable assets in a divorce and the division of them poses the largest liability risk to the domestic attorney.  Understanding QDROs is critical because the lack of one provision regarding survivorship can come back years later to bite even the most experienced practitioner.  This program provides practical tips and sample language to secure safe and fair divisions.

          of Jurisdiction
    5.  Separation Agreement or
          Judgement Entry Language
    6.  Explaining the QDRO to Your Client
    7.  Following Through with the Plan Administrator
•    Drafting QDROs for Defined Contribution Plans
