Ways to improve a QDRO

We All Need A Champion

When a Michigan couple's marriage comes to an end, they may be eager to sign the divorce papers as quickly as possible. However, that could be a mistake from a financial point of view. In cases where divorcing couples are splitting retirement assets, it may be necessary to sign a Qualified Domestic Relations Order. Although an individual may find the order to be fair, it may be worth checking with a financial adviser first.

This is because a person could be subject to taxes and fees that he or she was not expecting or prepared to pay. It may also be possible to lose money as soon as the order is signed. An attorney may refer a person to a certified divorce financial analyst to review the document.

A financial analyst may be able to help facilitate a transfer of assets in a timely manner. As a general rule, the role of the CFDA is to review the terms of a QDRO from a financial perspective. This is important because an attorney may not fully understand such an order outside of a legal perspective.

Individuals who are going through the divorce process may wish to talk with both legal and financial advisers. Doing so may help them find ways to get the most from any assets that they receive as part of a divorce settlement. Legal counsel may be able to help those going through a divorce find a financial analyst to help them make decisions as to how to split marital property in an equitable manner.
