My divorce was final July, 08. I had a quadro order with the decree asking for and was awarded by the court 1/2 of my spouses 401K. The company administrator says it is a "pension" and I cannot have it until he retires and I will draw 1/2 monthly of what he draws.
First it is NOT a pension, never was one. It is and has been a paid into by my former spouse out of his paychecks a 401K. We have taken out and paid back into this 401K three times for home loans.
I paid several hundred dollars in addition to the divorce fees to my attorney to get this 1/2 of the 401K and have it rolled into and IRA of my choice. My attorney after several months of incorrect quadro papers finally has satisfied the adminstrators polices on the quadro order. I however still cannot get the money and my former attorney refuses to do anything additional about it. He was not experienced on the quadro issue I now realize and has taken thousands of dollars from me I had to borrow and left me with nothing but the divorce and no recourse.
Please help as I'm desparate to find a way to get this 1/2 of the 401K before something happens to it as my former spouses company is downsizing and soon he will be unemployed as well. Who knows what will happen to the money when this occurs or even later on with that company that should not keep my own money awarded to me in a court of law. I'm lost and the many attorneys I've contacted simply won't help and most say they have no experience with Georgia quadros in any case.
