Hi. My names Lane. I can help here.

...

The QDRO (Qualified Domestic relations Order) is what allows money to be moved to the spouse getting an award OF that money without taxing the person LOSING that money for the distribution.

...

That's all it is, a form of tax relief. (SO that the spouse getting the money has to pay tax on it as she withdraws the money)

...

But whether a court awards FUTURE money (money after the divorce is final) is a product of the TERMS of the divorce.

..

It's VERY rare for a court to award future contributions to a defined contribution plan such as a 401(k) ... Why? becasue there's no guarantee that the ex will continue to make contributions ... that's completely voluntary.

...

What IS common is for payouts from defined benefit plans, such as monthly pensions that are based on how long an individual worked there, to be awarded and paiud out or partially awarded to an ex.

...

DO you have the decree Handy? I'd be glad to take a look.

...

but again the QDRO isn't relevant ... it's what the decree or sparationg agreement AWARDED that will drive what your ex has a right to.

...

Please let me know what questions you have from here.

...
