Question: Hello, once a divorce judgement is entered, what documents need to be filed with the court in order to split a pension? The marriage was for 45 years.
Answer: Pensions are divided in divorce by means of a QDRO. A QDRO (Qualified Domestic Relations Order) is usually prepared as part of the division of property in a divorce. It needs to be signed by the spouse, the judge and the pension plan administrator. This is a website that explains the process. Go to: https://apeopleschoice.com/qdro-process-from-start-to-finish/. Talk to your attorney about whether he or she prepared the QDRO and where you are in the approval process.
