Where do I write of QDRO expenses from my Lawyer expenses to split 401K's in a Divorce?

This is considered an investment Expense because the legal fees are secure your investment income. You will include this in your itemized deductions on Schedule A. 

Here is how to enter it in TurboTax Online

To enter in TurboTax Deluxe

Go to Deductions & Credits

Scroll to Retirement and Investments

Click Other Investment Expenses

These expenses must be more than 2% of your AGI to be deductible, so you may not see a difference in your calculations. 

For more information, see page 8 of IRS publication 529 here: Misc Expenses
