The answer to this questions depends on whether the retirement asset was addressed in your decree. If it was, but a QDRO was not prepared during or following the finalization of your divorce, it can be prepared at any future time, as long as the participant under the plan has not withdrawn his or her interest from the plan. Gary A. Nagler, P.L.L.C. has participated in assisting clients in this circumstance, sometimes as long as 10 or 20 years post-divorce.
If the retirement asset was not addressed in your divorce, this is a matter that needs to be addressed with a family law attorney, as it may be too late to be able to apportion the benefit to an alternate payee.
