About Us

Curtin Law, LLC concentrates in the area of Qualified Domestic Relations Orders.  Qualified Domestic Relations Orders are state orders that create or recognize the right of an alternate payee (a spouse, former spouse, child or other dependent) to receive part or all of a benefit payable to a participant under a pension, profit sharing or other retirement benefit plan to satisfy child support, alimony, maintenance or other marital property obligations.

In addition, Curtin Law, LLC provides language for settlement agreements or judgments when a QDRO, COAP, or other Order is required to assign benefits under a plan.
