Program Description:

Qualified retirement plans are one of your client’s most valuable assets; however, many divorce professionals avoid them like the plague. In fact, would you rather have a root canal than deal with a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO)? Well, you are in luck. This presentation will provide an overview of the most common retirement plan issues divorce professionals encounter in a dissolution action. We will attempt to demystify some common obstacles to effectively managing QDROS by addressing topics such as:

• Loans
• Valuation
• Equalizing multiple retirement plans
• Taxes
• And more!
