This is a Microsoft Word .docx template with sample provisions for the division of retirement assets intended for inclusion in a Massachusetts divorce agreement. This Schedule is not a complete agreement, and requires the addition of further schedules specific to such details such as contract provisions, support, etc. This template contains only the sections required in order to outline the rights of each spouse with respect to retirement assets including provisions for the division of pensions, 401ks, IRAs, etc. If used properly this section could obviate the need for a QDRO for certain types of plans.
All of these provisions may be modified to fit the unique circumstances of any particular family. We have included instructions throughout the template to assist with completing it.
