Trest professionals have collectively prepared, administered and provided advice on thousands of QDROs and other Orders  prepared in connection with public and private retirement plans nationwide (collectively “QDROs”).  Our team of QDRO experts administers QDROs for pension funds and employers, reviewing and approving/denying QDROs and working with the participants’ and alternate payees’ lawyers and other professionals to ensure that the QDRO is properly prepared and can be accepted by the plan.  Since we administer a significant volume of QDROs, we are able to offer our services for a flat fee of no more than five hundred dollars ($500), regardless of the amount of time expended by our professionals, until the instrument is certified by the court.  Our services are so complete that the employer virtually has no role in the process, which is highly desirable.
