Rightfully Yours

The estimated amount of unpaid child support in America runs into the billions of dollars. Even highly conservative sources say that at least 10 percent of non-custodial spouses don’t pay their child support, yet the vast majority of spouses who don’t pay their child support are not broke: they just claim to be!

The struggle to obtain what is rightfully yours — financial support from your ex-spouse — can be fraught with tension, anger, and compromise. This book will make available to you the most powerful tool in collecting past-due child support and alimony without wasting thousands of dollars in legal fees.

This book focuses on two important issues:

how to secure your share of your ex-spouse’s pension benefits earned during the marriage, and how to obtain past-due alimony and child support payments from your ex’s pension, profit-sharing, or 401(k) savings plan.

It explains the best-kept secret under United States federal law: the Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO). A QDRO is the legal document necessary to obtain direct payments from your ex’s retirement plan(s).

If you were awarded a portion of your ex’s pension benefits or if your ex is currently delinquent in child support payments, this book will be an invaluable resource. It covers topics such as:

What is a QDRO and why do I need one?

What are the different types of QDROs?

How much of the pension am I entitled to receive?

Am I entitled to receive my share of the pension for my entire lifetime?

Is it too late to draft a QDRO now, even though my divorce was years ago?

Can I use a QDRO to obtain past-due child support and alimony?
