Kevin has drafted and reviewed hundreds of QDROs for family law attorneys, clients, and qualified plans. He has litigated QDROs in state and federal court. He is a member of the joint task force to streamline QDROs, sponsored by the American Retirement Association and the Pension Rights Center in Washington, D.C. He provides individuals and family law attorneys a low cost and efficient way to obtain approved QDROs. Each QDRO is carefully written by an attorney to comply not only with applicable law, but also with qualified plan and court requirements. He makes it easy to understand your retirement plan rights.
Kevin is certified in collaborative law and is a member of the Collaborative Law Association of Western Pennsylvania. He has served as a QDRO neutral for several collaborative law cases. As a neutral consultant who provides information to both parties, he does not serve as your legal counsel.
In addition to preparing and obtain approvals for QDROs, Kevin can assist you with pension valuations, calculating the marital property component of retirement benefits, review opposing experts' appraisals, issues involving ERISA plans, and QDRO litigation.
With the Basic QDRO Preparation service, we prepare the QDRO; you submit the QDRO to the court and the Plan. This service is designed for those who only need help preparing the QDRO and understanding their plan rights. We prepare the QDRO and send the final product to the parties, their attorneys, or both. The fee includes a reasonable period for consulting and advice. If the plan requires changes, we will prepare a revised QDRO for no additional fee.
The Enhanced QDRO Service is most useful for parties and family law attorneys who want someone else to handle the QDRO entirely. We prepare the QDRO, obtain the parties' signatures, and submit the QDRO to the court and to the plan for approval. If the plan requests revisions, we'll do the entire process over again, for no additional fee, until you receive final approval from the plan.
