Military Pension And Retirement Benefits

The divorce process for individuals in the military or for military spouses is different than a civilian divorce. Specific guidelines and laws must be followed during divorce negotiations and during property division.

Pension and retirement benefits need to be divided according to guidelines stated under the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act. This act protects spouses of military members if they are entitled to their spouse's military pension. The amount a spouse can receive is based on the benefits accrued during the length of the marriage.
