While a busy travel schedule will certainly impact the parenting plan, it does not usually result in the non-traveling parent getting sole custody. It is important for the children to have a relationship with both parents.
Legal custody refers to making decisions for the children regarding their education, health, religion, and extra-curricular activities. Physical custody refers to where the children will reside and how they will spend their time with each parent.
QDRO is a Qualified Domestic Relations Order. It is the legal document required by law in order to divide most retirement accounts, including 401(k) accounts and pensions. State retirement accounts may not be divided by a QDRO, however, they are subject to different laws than retirement accounts that fall within the federal law known as ERISA.
