Is there a time limit on a QDRO?
In general, there is no time limit on when a Probate and Family Court will review and issue a QDRO. Unfortunately, the same is not always true when it comes to retirement plan administrators, particularly if a participant dies before a QDRO is filed.
Can a QDRO be Cancelled?
The only way to have it changed is to have the courts issue an amendment to the original QDRO, although it would still be up to the administrator of the retirement plan to review the new plans and approve them.
Can I claim some of my ex husband’s pension?
When a couple gets divorced their pensions are usually included in the financial settlement along with property and other assets. Without a 'consent' or court order confirming the settlement, both parties can make a claim on their former partner's pension, regardless of how long they've been divorced.
