Military Retirement, Divorce, and the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court is preparing to hear a case on March 20th, that originates out of Arizona. The case Howell v. Howell boils down to a single issue; If a service member is ordered to provide the former spouse a community property share of their military retirement, and the retirement in question is reduced as a result of VA disability pay, does the service member have an obligation to still provide the ordered portion of their retirement to the former spouse, or is that portion reduced as per the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act (a 1982 federal law that authorizes state courts to divide up military retirement pay in a divorce).

Leave the military family. Keep the medical benefits.

When you were engaged to the man who would become your husband, you understood that committing to him meant committing to the military. As an enlisted servicemember, your husband dedicated his life to protecting the country's interests. As a military spouse, you dedicated your life to keeping your family on an even keel when he was deployed. Tending to the needs of your children, minding the finances and providing a warm welcome upon his return, you never clocked out of your job. A good deal of your husband's success relied upon your fulfilling the role of the family rock and your ability to perform the tasks of both parents in his absence.
