1 Answer from Attorneys
It doesn't matter how much time has lapsed; you still have a right to those funds. Don't beat yourself up over the delay; it happens quite a bit. Just get a QDRO (which stands for Qualified Domestic Relations Order) or other appropriate order drafted up by an attorney who specializes in that area. Very few family law attorneys handle this kind of work since it is so specialized; I might suggest Bob Harrian of Harrian Law. Also, you can seek reimbursement for half of the attorney's fees from your ex-husband. Best of luck!
