I agree with my colleague. This is a far-fetched allegation and likely coming from a person with mental illness. Consult with a lawyer asap. Don't have any other contact with him or law enforcement.

The judge won't do the QDRO for you. You will need to hire an attorney, usually one with a tax background to prepare a QDRO for you. The QDRO doesn't have to hold up the divorce. You can simply get a final judgment and request that the judge sign the QDRO when it's ready.

I was in an apartment and my upstairs neighbor was bothering me consistently. One night I threw water at him through the screen of his patio.
answered on May 4, 2020
Yes, throwing water at someone, if they saw it, is at least assault. (battery also, if it hit them) I think prosecution is a long shot and continues to be less likely, the longer this goes on without the other person making a police report.
