We often hear from clients that the reason they are still in a bad marriage is "for the kids". While the logic is understandable, the reality is that this is actually much worse for everyone involved, Especially the kids!
On Monday, May 17th, 2017, The United State Supreme Court ruled on the case Howell v. Howell,(read the decision here) a case RPM Law has been following closely, and wrote about earlier (here).
The Supreme Court decided the case we previously wrote about here (http://www.matthewrandlelaw.com/.../military-retirement-divor...)
If you or your spouse are a retired service member that is divorced or divorcing, I have some news for you: in Arizona, the benefits that are received for military retirement can, and likely will be divided, in part, between you and your (soon-to-be) former spouse. That is because Arizona is a Community Property State, which in a nutshell means that any property interest acquired by either spouse during the time of the marriage belongs to both people and at divorce can be split in half.
