Are you divorcing in a state other than Nevada with a Public Employees’ Retirement System of Nevada Plan?
NRS 286.6703 requires the following: The judgment, decree or order submitted to the Executive Officer must be signed by a district judge, the judges of the Court of Appeals or by the justices of the Supreme Court and entered and certified by the clerk of the district court or the Clerk of the Supreme Court. 3.
In order to split a Public Employees’ Retirement System of Nevada (“NV PERS”) plan, with a former spouse, a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (“QDRO”) will need to be done. The NV PERS plan can be split either before or after you have retired.
To split the NV PERS retirement account with a QDRO you will need to have your Decree of Divorce domesticated in the state of Nevada. This is done by providing a signed/certified copy of your Decree of Divorce, party contact information and payment to QDRO Consultants, LLC. QDRO Consultants, LLC will then prepare the necessary paperwork for the parties to sign. Once signed, QDRO Consultants, LLC will submit the signed paperwork to the court to domesticate a foreign Decree of Divorce (divorce from a state other than Nevada) on your behalf. The court will issue a case number and the process of drafting the necessary QDRO to split a members NV PERS account can begin.
