Is there a set time limit on when an ex wife can get half of my retirement pension, I got papers from her lawyers yesterday

Asked over 1 year ago - Cape Coral, FL

This stems back from a divorce in 2000, and I have been retired for 4 years now? I live in Fl, this suit is in Ohio

    Answered . That issue should have been settled at the time of the divorce. Here in Florida, a separate Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) is used to deal with dividing a pension. Was something similar done back in 2000?

    You might also direct this question to attorneys in Ohio to get their take on this situation.

    Answered . You need to address your question to an Ohio family law attorney. Re post your question with an Ohio location so it will be presented to Ohio attorneys.
