STAYING FOR THE KIDS?

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!

Double Dipping - Military Retirement Pay and VA Disability Pay

Most people who served or are/were married to someone who served, have heard that you either draw Military Retirement Benefit or VA Disability Compensation. The basic principal behind this is that you cannot double-dip from both money pots. As such, especially in light of the fact that someone can "waive" their Military Retirement(which is taxable) and get VA Disability(not taxable) instead, to get a couple extra dollars, most people choose the tax-free VA money as soon as it is an option.

Military Retirement Division in Arizona Divorces

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.
