QDRO Attorney Serving Braddock Heights, MD

If you need a QDRO Attorney in Braddock Heights, Maryland, call the Law Offices of Laura N. Venezia.

When you reach the end of the divorce process, it can feel like a huge relief. But if you and your ex have retirement assets to split there’s still one important task to complete before you can close the book on this chapter of your life.

You need a properly executed Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) to get the split correct and make sure everything’s above board. This is a legal document that directs a retirement plan to distribute some or all of the retirement funds of one spouse to the other spouse. Without this document, the 401K division cannot be fully completed.

These documents are full of legal language that is hard to execute. However, if it’s filed incorrectly, it can cost the person receiving the funds a lot of money.

At the Law Offices of Laura N. Venezia, we have years of experience working closely with QDROs of all shapes and sizes, helping clients finalize their divorces. We offer this service to couples who have decided to DIY their divorces, as well as those working with attorneys.

The “typical” family is evolving, and that often includes a situation where a stepparent decides to adopt a child that isn’t theirs biologically.

This process isn’t as simple as having your new spouse adopt your child. Both the child’s biological parents must consent to the stepparent adoption, something that can be time-consuming, frustrating, and emotional.

Even if your child’s other parent has signed away their rights or has been absent for quite some time, the legal process must be followed to finalize the stepparent adoption properly.

We not only help you track down an absent parent. We also assist you in drafting the legal paperwork and negotiating any necessary terms with your child’s other parent. Once rights have been relinquished, we also can help you with the official stepparent adoption process.

Your child deserves the love and care of two parents. Let the Law Offices of Laura N. Venezia help make that happen. Schedule a consultation today!
