The divorce is complete and the decree is signed. My attorney is no longer needed, right? Maybe not.
Execution of ancillary documents such as Qualified Domestic Relations Orders, special warranty deeds, affidavits to transfer motor vehicle title, etc., will need to be completed if called for in the decree.
Failure to make sure these documents are executed can result in very negative financial consequences years down the road, such as a lost share of retirement plan benefits or equity from a home.
