I have recently been advised that my divorce is invalid in the Dominican Republic and in the U.S. because the law in the D.R. was not followed. On the day I informed him of this, he allowed a QDRO to be entered and approved by the court in Illinois giving 100% of his pension benefit to his first wife. What does his employer have an obligation to do if I inform them that the participant is still married?

Not sure I'm following your line here. Were you the first wife or are you the second wife? If the plan administrator deems the DRO to be Qualified, then they must follow the details of the QDRO. It is the responsibility of the legal teams involved to cover the aspects. The admin/employer has to comply with the QDRO. If you think it's invalid - your attorney's would need to act quickly, depending on the Document language from the Qualified Plan - this distribution could occur very soon.

Good luck.
