QDRO - Best to open during or after divorce

Hi Christin, thank you for maintaining this invaluable forum.
It looks like he wants to go for a trial for the permanent spousal support number while we come up with a mutual document for the property settlement. My question is: Can I ask him to start the QDRO process or is it wise to wait until the permanent SS issue is resolved and divorce is final and then start the QDRO process.

thank you,

Yes, you can absolutely start the QDRO process! It might help with determining spousal support, as then you would know how much retirement you would receive.
