I just received a QDRO distribution from my ex-wife during our divorce. What is the best way to use the distribution to pay debt and fund my IRA?

In regard to the 401(k) loan, unless paid back, the IRS will deem this amount a distribution in the year she was terminated. Therefore, there will be taxation as well as a possible early withdrawal penalty.

For yourself, to avoid taxes, the money should be rolled over into an IRA. In my experience, because it is retirement money, the custodial will only release it to another retirement account.  From there, if you wanted to take withdrawals to pay debt you can, but you need to figure out if it is worth the possible tax consequences to do so.
