FREE QDRO Trainings thanks to the Nevada Bar Foundation!

We are reaching out to you as nonprofit legal aid organization staff and/or self-help center staff that provide family law support to low-income litigants to tell you about two upcoming free trainings from the Center for Access to QDROs. 

The Center for Access to QDROs, which was created by QDRO and valuation experts, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to closing the justice gap by providing access to high-quality QDRO products to nonprofit legal services organizations, self-help centers, and qualified individuals in financial distress. Thanks to grants from the California State Bar Foundation, the Center has been providing trainings and QDRO drafting support in California to legal aid organizations and/or self-help centers since 2022. Due to the success in California, we are expanding to other states to address this critical issue. 

It is a mistaken notion that only people with money have retirement accounts. All too often, one of the parties in a divorce is employed having some sort of retirement account (e.g. 401k), but the other party is not aware of his/her rights to a portion of those assets or because of lack of access in the self-help centers and/or legal aid organizations is not able to obtain his/her marital or community interest in those funds because they need a QDRO!
