Los Angeles QDRO FAQs
Once a filed QDRO is sent to the Plan Administrator of your plan (401K, IRA, Pension, etc). The Plan Administrator determines the portion of the account that belongs to the Alternate Payee (ex-Spouse).
A QDRO is a document that gets filed with the court. It is a court order that directs your plan administrator to make pre-tax distributions to an ex-spouse (alternate payee) following a divorce.
The QDRO fees are typically shared between the Participant and Alternate Payee, but that isn’t always the case. Either party can pay our fees.
Laguna Legal will take care of the preparation and filing of your Los Angeles QDRO.
The QDRO is filed in the same court as your dissolution action was filed. The case number for the QDRO will be the same case number as the Judgment which originally ordered the division of retirement accounts.
If appearance fees have already been made by both parties in the initial dissolution action, the filing fees for the QDRO are minimal. The fee paid to Laguna Legal includes the filing of the QDRO.
Typically the process is 60-90 days to prepare, review and file the QDRO with the court. The final disbursement of funds can be longer depending on the timeline of your Plan Administrator.
Yes, you need a QDRO for any pre-tax distributions to be made to an Alternate Payee. If money is withdrawn from a 401k without a QDRO, then the withdrawal will be taxed to the Plan Participant.
