Helping Atlanta Residents Protect Their Property Rights in Divorce

Property division is one of the most hotly contested issues in a divorce. Under Georgia law, courts will conduct a fair division of the parties’ marital assets. Among the types of assets to which both parties may have an interest are certain retirement accounts and pensions.

What Is a Qualified Domestic Relations Order?

A qualified domestic relations order is a type of state court order used to divide funds in certain retirement plans, such as a 401(k) or pension. A QDRO is essential during the property division process in a divorce because it allows the distribution of a retirement plan without incurring a tax liability based on a distribution of the plan’s funds before the participant reaches 59 ½.

At Warner Bates we can have experience with the following issues related to QDROs:

  • 401(k) Plans
  • IRA Rollover Accounts
  • Public Pensions
  • Private Pensions
  • Tax Consequences of Distributions
