It’s Your Journey.
We Help You Navigate It.

Your divorce is a life transition unique to you. No two divorces are alike. We understand this and will listen to you regarding what you want. We explain California community property law in plain language and help you understand how it applies to the facts of your case. We can then work together to develop a practical roadmap for you, with the goal of satisfactory settlement. Keep in mind, divorce cases are often 10% law and 90% emotion - we can help you with both!

QDRO Services

Pensions and retirement accounts are often one of the largest assets to be divided or allocated in a divorce or legal separation. Dividing and/or changing ownership of pensions and retirement plans due to a divorce is a complex process that involves issues related to acquisition, valuation and distribution.When pension funds are divided or reallocated in a divorce, a QDRO (Qualified Domestic Relations Order) needs to be incorporated into the divorce agreement. There are also a number of steps that need to be taken to comply with the law, pension plan requirements and to ensure equitable distribution of accounts. California law requires a Joinder for each plan. From simple divorces to high conflict and high net worth family divorces, Divorce Help is experienced at navigating complex retirement systems and preparing the complicated paperwork associated with pension distributions and QDROs. Unsure if you need a QDRO? Contact the attorneys at Divorce Help by calling 1-800-359-7004 to schedule your QDRO consultation and analysis today.

Hi Arianna, I'm at the end of the filing process for my divorce, and thanks to you and Allison and the rest of the team, it's been a very smooth and anxiety-free process. Not to mention a very affordable service that you offer. I just wanted to say Allison was great at putting me at ease, being understanding and efficient, and I would recommend her to anyone who needs family law help. Please pass this on to her and if you need any additional testimonials or reviews for future clients, I would be happy to add mine.
