About QDRO Consultants

QDRO Consultants Co. does one thing: QDROs. As authors of the leading QDRO texts, including Dividing Pensions in Divorce: Negotiating and Drafting Safe Settlements with QDROs and Present Values, 3rd Edition; and Value of Pensions in Divorce, 5th edition, we bring experience and expertise to QDRO administration.

What distinguishes us from others is our ability to handle the most difficult QDROs in a professional manner that enhances your company's reputation while also limiting corporate liability. We have gained this expertise from years of processing QDROs for Fortune 500 companies and drafting countless thousands of QDROs for family law attorneys throughout the U.S. Our publications and articles reflect this rich and varied experience that we bring to QDRO administration.

QDRO Consultants Co. offers direct access to the most qualified QDRO compliance team in the country. The key to our success is our ability to guide plan participants and attorneys through this sometimes challenging process. Because we are known as the leading educators in the field, we can help diffuse even the most adversarial situations.

Our mission is straightforward: Alleviate our clients of the "ultimate legal nuisance" called QDROs in a professional, "cost-effective" manner. "Cost-effective" because our flat-rate fee saves your company time and money over the hourly rates charged by other firms.

The Staff

QDRO Consultants Co. combines legal and retirement plan knowledge in an unparalleled way. We review QDROs for over 1,700 companies and offer Present Value and QDRO drafting services to attorneys nationwide. Our managers average 18 years of experience in the field of Qualified Domestic Relations Orders and our full staff has over 260 years of experience.

The Training

As a company that focuses on dividing pensions in divorce and on writing legal texts in the field we are uniquely positioned to offer the most comprehensive QDRO training in the country. All QDRO administrators receive thorough training on pensions and 401(k)s by working towards certification and credentials with The American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries. That is supplemented by “QDRO College.”

QDRO College

QDRO College is our internal training program based on our numerous texts and experience in the field. It provides our staff with a thorough understanding of QDROs. When these experts review Domestic Relations Orders they read every word and understand the implications of every provision. This allows us to administer QDROs not only based on terms of the Order and plan procedures, but also with an eye towards future issues that might arise. Our expertise is liability protection for your company.
