Qualified Domestic Relations and other Pension Orders are only prepared under the direction and on behalf of legal counsel.
Hoffman Divorce Strategies handles the preparation and qualification of Qualified Domestic Relations, Military Pension Division Orders, State, Federal and Other Pension Division Orders for attorneys on behalf of their clients. We work with attorneys and their clients to process the order and make sure that it is approved by the pension administrator.
Orders and related documents are e-delivered by secure Share File™ allowing a three-day turnaround from our office once payment, division instructions, plan procedures and suggested QDRO formats have been received.
It is the general policy of Hoffman Divorce Strategies to have draft Orders conditionally pre-approved by the Plan Administrator. Some Plans will not pre-approve an order. Some plans have long approval times (in some cases, up to six weeks). However, most plans can pre-approve an order in a timely manner. Conditional Pre-approval does not constitute formal approval and qualification by the Plan.
