In Texas, a Qualified Domestic Relations Order, also known as a "QDRO", is an order signed by the divorce court, usually in conjunction with the Final Decree of Divorce or shortly thereafter regarding retirement benefits.
This is the Order that needs to be sent to the plan administrator of a retirement account to obtain your portion of your spouse’s retirement benefits. If you are awarded retirement benefits not in your name, but did not have a QDRO signed, you will be unable to receive those benefits.
