When you don’t do the QDRO, your client doesn’t get her money.
When your client doesn’t get her money, her ex-husband empties the account.
When your client’s ex-husband empties the account, she sues you.
When your client sues you, you lose everything.
When you lose everything, your wife runs off with your best friend.
My, how you miss him.
Don’t lose your best friend.
Do the QDRO.
