Gray Jay offers flat fee preparation of QDROs and DROs, and we also offer hourly consulting services to ensure that people are educated about their options for retirement accounts, and their agreements contain the necessary language for the proper division of a retirement account.
For hourly consulting our rate is $400 per hour. We can come to your location or meet in our office (or via telephone or Zoom video meeting). It usually takes 1-2 hours for a full education/consulting session on the options available with your specific retirement plans.
