A qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) is a court order granting a spouse a right to a part of the retirement benefits his or her ex-spouse has earned through participation in retirement plan.
QDRO could be obtain a long time after the divorce decree is issued. However, it is better to prepare and to file a QDRO with the plan as early as possible. The reason is If the party who worked for employer retires after finalizing a divorce, and there is no QDRO has been filed with the plan, the participant begin to receive retirement. If a QDRO is issued after making payment to the retiree, the plan will not apply the payment retroactively.
