Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) in Scottsdale

What is a QDRO?

A Qualified Domestic Relations Order is a court order related to the property settlement of retirement benefits during divorce proceedings. In Arizona, income earned during the marriage as well as retirement benefits accrued from the income of the employed spouse are considered community property. Consequently, during the property settlement portion of divorce proceedings, a QDRO is issued to address deferred compensation benefits acquired during the marriage.

Examples of benefits that require a QDRO include:

  • Pensions
  • IRAs
  • 401Ks

If you need help understanding QDRO, please don't hesitate to contact the divorce lawyers from Arizona Family Law Solutions at (602) 892-9767.
