$200 Flat Fee per Joinder. Some retirement plans (typically city, county and state government plans) require a joinder before they will honor a QDRO. We provide California joinder services for any plan that requires a joinder. Joinder services are only offered in conjunction with QDRO preparation services.
$150 per QDRO. As part of our QDRO preparation services, we provide clients with a detailed instruction letter detailing how to file the QDRO with the court (by mail) and submit the court filed copy to the plan administrator. The court filing fee paid to the court is $20-65 per QDRO. However, for $150, we assist clients who prefer that we handle the court filing and retirement plan submission for them. This service is only available to our QDRO preparation clients, and when the parties are able to provide QDRO Helper with a fully signed QDRO. This service does not include elisor motions.
