The Mumey Law Firm focuses on the preparation of qualified domestic relations orders, commonly referred to as QDROs. We have successfully secured approval of hundreds of QDROs over the years. QDROs are the court orders needed to effect the proper distribution of retirement funds to an ex-spouse. QDROs are very technical and require meticulous attention to detail. Whether it’s a defined benefit pension or a deferred compensation account, a QDRO is necessary to permit direct distribution of the court ordered funds to the ex-spouse, thus ensuring correct allocation of tax responsibility.
The division of City of Houston employee pensions is also a complicated problem. We have been representing clients to ensure that their QDRO accurately awards the amount determined by the divorce decree from that specific retirement plan.
