The two things people are typically most concerned about during divorce is what will happen with their children and what will happen with their assets. At the law office of Amy M. Levine & Associates, we represent individuals throughout Ohio and West Virginia at every step of the divorce process, helping them determine child custody and property division matters.

The firm’s founding attorney, Amy Levine, has an LL.M. in business and taxation, and her knowledge and understanding of finances and financial documents give our team a unique perspective in the division of retirement accounts. We work with financial experts and accountants to ensure all retirement accounts are accurately valuated, and we work closely with our clients to ensure they understand their options and the possible ramifications of any choice.

What Is A Qualified Domestic Relations Order?

Qualified domestic relations orders (also called a QDROs) are used to divide retirement accounts during divorce. The QDRO helps ensure the alternate payee receives an ownership stake in his or her ex-spouse’s pension plan or retirement account. When we represent clients, we help ensure their QDROs comply with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) guidelines.
