A Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) is a key component in separation, divorce or other domestic relations proceedings because in most situations the employer-sponsored retirement plan is usually their largest asset. QDROs are typically used when dividing retirement plans as part of the equitable distribution in the divorce process. While some CPAs firms have divorce planning in their menu of services, developing expertise in QDROs is a natural lead-in to the broader service area of divorce taxation.
