Fee Schedule

We offer a discount that is automatically applied to your request!  Any time you request the preparation of multiple drafting orders in the same case we will discount the second and any subsequent orders by $100.  For instance, if you need both a defined benefit and define contribution QDRO in the same case, the total fee will be $700 ($400 for the first and $300 for the second).  In order to receive this discount, all same case QDRO requests must be submitted at the same time. Same case QDRO requests individually completed and submitted with payment will not receive the discount.  We do not offer a discount for the request of multiple present values.
