Eegads. I have a conflict now before the appelate court. My ex would never agree to the QDRO amounts. Although we had actual dollar values of each of our 401ks, and it was simple math, he refused to agree, even when I hire a QDRO lawyer to draw up the papers. I don't know why that QDRO lawyer needed him to approve it. :( Fast forward 9 years, and the 401k values are vastly different. So my lawyer wrote a QDRO also giving me gains on the original amount. She then (without any communication to me whatsoever), amended that order to subtract all gains. Obviously, I fired her for doing that without even communicating to me and giving me an option to argue the point. My new lawyer showed me that the case law is on my side in that I should get any gains or losses on the 401k. So we await a decision from the appelate court.
The lawyers are making a load of money on my divorce. Until the children are out of college (hopefully 4-6 years), I will be frequenting the courthouse.
