QDRO Attorney Serving Monrovia, MD

Splitting retirement assets in a divorce can be complicated. Once you’ve figured out who gets what and where it’s all going, there’s still one major thing to deal with: The Qualified Domestic Relations Order, or QDRO. This step will likely require an expert QDRO attorney serving Monrovia, Maryland.

A QDRO 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 lengthy documents are full of legal language that, if improperly executed, can cost the person receiving the funds a lot of money.

Don’t risk these documents to just anyone. Trust the Law Offices of Laura N. Venezia to quickly, capably, and completely execute any QDRO your retirement plan may need so you can finally close the book on your divorce.

We offer this service to couples who have decided to DIY their divorces, as well as those working with attorneys.

Sometimes, your child’s other parent can decide, for whatever reason, to stop contacting your child.

If you have a new partner who wishes to adopt your child as their own, stepparent adoption may be right for your family.

A stepparent adoption isn’t just as simple as your new spouse adopting your child. You and the child’s other parent must consent to the adoption, which is often a time-consuming and emotional process.

If your child’s other parent has been absent for some time, or they want to relinquish their legal rights to your child, written consent must be given before a stepparent adoption can begin.

Our office not only helps you track down an absent parent, but also assists 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 both parents. Let the Law Offices of Laura N. Venezia help make that happen. Schedule a consultation today!
