Making Pensions in Divorce Accessible.
The Harriett Buhai Center and QDROCounsel will provide FREE training, software, and mentoring to nonprofit legal aid programs and court-based self-help centers providing family law assistance to low and moderate-income persons. The project will increase the participants’ capacity to help family law litigants equitably divide retirement benefits.
Dividing Pensions in Divorce Project
Through a specialized legal training and education program, which will demystify the process, participants will learn how to divide retirement benefits. This free year-long program provides a robust package of expert-led live (video) trainings, webinars, web-based automated drafting tools, and help-desk mentoring for a broad swath of nonprofit and government organizations interested in improving the economic security of limited income persons in family law cases.

The Dividing Pension in Divorce Project’s primary goal is to increase the capacity among nonprofit legal service providers, court-based self-help centers, and other similar entities, to enable low and moderate-income individuals to claim their pension benefits in divorce.
Funded by a one-year Innovation and Infrastructure Grant awarded by the California Access to Justice Commission, the Dividing Pensions in Divorce Project is led by the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law and its partner, QDROCounsel.
