Turner v. Turner, 47 Va. App. 76. Affirmed my client’s position: Where a final divorce decree provided that the wife would be entitled to 50% of the marital share of the husband's pension, the trial court did not err in entering a QDRO after his retirement, because the QDRO did not create substantive rights, but only effectuated the express intent of the final decree under Va. Code Ann. § 20-107.3(K)(4).
