Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) for payment of child support

 

A Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) is a court order used in domestic relations cases to provide payments for property division, child support, and alimony for support. 

In cooperation with each plan administrator, Child Support Services (CSS) has developed QDRO forms for the seven Oklahoma state agency retirement plans as well as a Motion for QDRO and a generic QDRO sample.  These QDROs are for child support ONLY and do not address property division or alimony for support.  Most of the state plans post a QDRO for property divisions and/or alimony for support on their internet pages.

Each of these QDRO forms is available in WORD form in the DHS Internet Library.  Note that the Oklahoma Firefighters Pension and Retirement System (OFPRS) does not require a QDRO to offset retirement benefits for payment of child support, an Income Withholding Order (IWO) will suffice.

 

Both the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University have retirement plans that are alternatives to university employees participating in the Oklahoma Teachers Retirement System.  When CSS develops an agreed form of QDRO for these two university retirement plans we intend to post that as well.

 

CSS would like to develop this site as a more comprehensive source of information and QDRO form sharing so that Attorney's and others needing a QDRO do not have to start from scratch with each retirement plan.  We would also like to receive copies of any Child Support specific QDROs that you have used with other retirement plans. 

 

If you would like more information regarding QDROs and CSS, please contact Anthony.Jackson@okdhs.org or Mary.Thompson@okdhs.org
