Let QDRO Compliance Services review opposing counsel’s QDRO to be sure that it was drafted in accordance with the intent of the parties and the court. Don’t be deceived by opposing counsel who may have included some clauses that were never intended by the court. Whether you represent the plan participant or the alternate payee, there are ways to circumvent the terms and provisions of the judgment entry to the detriment of your client. For example, if you represent the alternate payee and the court awarded your client a full coverture share of the participant’s accrued benefits, you should carefully review the terms of the QDRO to be sure that the “frozen” coverture approach was not utilized in the Order. This could have a devastating effect on your client’s eventual share of the pension.
