Good morning Janet,

I'm sorry to hear of your dilemma.

The preparation and filing of a QDRO is probably the most complicated document procedures that is ever seen in a divorce action. Many family law attorneys don't even prepare them, relying on specialists to do it instead.

Your chances of successfully completing and filing the QDRO are slim, in my experience.

You can probably find an attorney to assist you if you agree to pay their fee out of the QDRO distribution. I suggest that you take the approach.

I wish you well.


Best regards,

Doug

Good morning,

You will need to contact a local family law attorney. If they don't prepare QDRO's personally, they can arrange to have it prepared for you.

I wish you the best.

Best regards,
