By Family Lawyer Magazine
Free cutting-edge proactive QDRO e-management program. Anytime, anywhere, 24/7 access to e-files, status and QDRO pdf’s of hand-drafted QDROs.
First came the computer and e-mail. Now exciting new proactive technology is fast coming to the law field, and in particular, to the divorce lawyer who can most benefit due to lower-billing cases and the challenges of direct and often emotional client contact.
Free QDRO e-Request & e-Management Tool
AVVO, the online Q&A Forum for Experts says that keeping the client informed and handling important aspects of the case correctly and in a timely fashion are keys to client satisfaction. Making the time to fill out forms in the highly technical and legalistic area of Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs) cannot be put on the back burner. No lawyer wants to be in the position where the Participant dies and the QDRO is not in place. Time spent looking for the file and not having the file in hand when it’s needed creates an additional productivity roadblock. The Texas Center for Legal Ethics states “failing to have the right document or the right answer on hand is common complaint clients have about their attorneys.” Not being able to immediately advise the clients where the QDRO stands in terms of the request or the pre- approval process is another attorney and client frustration.
Manage Hand-Drafted QDROs
