Many Retirement Plans such as 401(k)s, 403(b)s, Deferred Compensation Plans, Private Sector Pensions, Local and Federal Government pensions (military, FERS, TSPs, etc), have to be divided with a document called Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO), or a "QDRO-like" instrument to avoid taxation.  The IRS recognizes QDRO as a vehicle to transfer retirement plan assets between divorced spouse tax free.  BUT IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT IT IS DRAFTED ACCURATELY AND IN A TIMELY MATTER! The QDRO process, from the time the QDRO document is drafted, certified by the Court and served unto the Plan, can take months. That means the former spouse who is entitled to receive a share of the retirement plan,  will have to wait the same time. This could lead to undesired and potentially risky outcomes including the loss of benefits for the former spouse. 


Denisa frequently lectures on the topic of QDRO to attorneys and Judges and advises divorcing couples to begin the QDRO process as soon as their agreement regarding the division of retirement assets has been put into place.
