Because many retirement accounts are community property, they might be divided in a divorce. A Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) in Placer County and throughout California is a document which directs a retirement plan administrator to transfer some of the account assets to a former spouse. Without a properly drafted QDRO, many administrators will refuse to divide accounts. A person might also need a QDRO to collect payment on child support or alimony. A QDRO is often a normal part of a divorce, but they must adhere to certain requirements to be effective.
