This post discusses a Norfolk Circuit Court QDRO (Qualified Domestic Relations Order). Can A Norfolk Circuit enter a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) after a divorce decree has been entered to create a procedural change and to satisfy the intent of the final divorce decree?
Yes. Courts always have the authority to interpret their own orders, even after 21 days have passed after entry of a divorce decree. Thus, a Norfolk Circuit Court QDRO can be entered by the court. As long as the Norfolk Circuit Court Judge does not alter the terms of the initial decree substantively, the Judge can enter a Qualified Domestic Relations Order to make it conform to the intentions of the parties. A Qualified Domestic Relations Order is an order that is used in a divorce. The order is necessary to divide pension funds. If you do not have a Qualified Domestic Relations Order, when a pension is divided, there may be tax consequences. The non participant spouse may have to pay taxes on the transferred funds. The one piece of information that individuals need to know is that generally you can create a Qualified Domestic Relations Order if there are problems.
