Hi there, my name is Madeleine Bergquist , and I wonder if you can help me to get a judge signature on my QDR form.
My ex-husband, and I got divorced 2 years ago (married and divorced in Sweden-we are Swedish citizen but lived in the US for 13 years) and in the divorce settlement I got entitled to 50% of my ex- husbands 4O1K. The papers are signed but we need help to get a judge’s signature. Is this something you can help me with? Does my ex-husband need a lawyer or can you help us both. I have all the original papers signed. We both live in Sweden now since 11 years.
But I will be in San Anselmo between July 19th to August 1st. Whats is an estimated /time/ cost for this?

You need to contact an attorney in the county that you filed your divorce. They can draft a stipulation for the QDRO and file it with the court so that the judge can sign it. There must be specific language in the document, so you will need an attorney with experience in this area.
