Qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) is a legal order or decree that requires one party to pay an agreed amount to another party. Usually issued by a family or domestic court, a QRDO generally refers to payments such as alimony, child support, or other property disbursements that are made from a spouse, former spouse, or other familial relation for the benefit of another person. The order is specific for individual cases and would include the name and address of the recipient as well as the compensation amount. The QRDO would need to be in compliance with any federal guidelines for pensions or retirement funds in addition to following instructions from the court judgment.
