I Hate QDROs
Imagine the look on Judge Anthony Conrad Bellchamp's face at his retirement party.
His wife of fifteen years pulled him aside.
"Judith [... Judge Bellchamp's ex-wife] called. She sends her regrets that she can't attend the retirement party. She also wanted to tell you that she applied for your TCDRS* retirement.
It's a nightmare. But you're not dreaming.
"She said she gets it all. Is that true?
"Wait. There's more. She said she gets all of the ERS** retirement, too. And, apparently, you named her irrevocable beneficiary for every penny in both retirements.
"What are we going to do?"
