Legal Question in Family Law in California

I am a domestic violence victim advocate in California. I have a client who is divorcing her abuser. She has a retirement account from a state agency and he has a 401K. Both have roughly the same amount in the account. Both parties agree that each should keep their own account without dividing them. Is a QDRO necessary in this case?
