How A Domestic Relations Order Becomes Qualified

To better understand a QDRO, you must first understand what a Domestic Relations Order (DRO) is. A DRO is an arrangement that a family law court has issued during a divorce. In order for a DRO to become qualified, it needs to be accepted by the plan provider, the company that holds the retirement account in question.

Often times, the plan provider will also require you to submit additional paperwork for the provider to accept the DRO, which results in even more paperwork that you need to complete.
