    Thanks for the information on when to hire a QDRO expert. I will be sure my brother hires a QDRO expert “sooner rather than later”, so he can reach a proper financial settlement in his divorce. Do you have any other tips I should pass along?

    Great article about Tim Voit and Jordan Gerber about QDROs. I liked Gerber’s suggestion that a QDRO expert will notice things that a regular lawyer wouldn’t, and the importance of this, given the time-sensitive nature of the process. I like how she said that sometimes you won’t know if your lawyer made a mistake until years later, after your former spouse retires, and then it is too late. Interesting post.
