Set Over Law and Legal Definition

Set over means to assign, to transfer or to convey. For example: Trial court erred in entering divorce decree in attempting to set over part of the husband's retirement fund account to the wife through a Qualified Domestic Relations Order, because it was prohibited by Ind. Code § 5-10.3-8-9(a).[ Everette v. Everette, 841 N.E.2d 210, 2006 Ind. App. LEXIS 121 (2006).]

This means that the trial court went wrong in trying to transfer part of the husband's retirement fund account to the wife through a Qualified Domestic Relations Order, because it was prohibited by Ind. Code § 5-10.3-8-9(a).

Set over also means to appoint or constitute as supervisor, inspector, ruler or commander.
