Question: In the military, is retired pay divided?
Answer: State divorce courts have the power to divide military pensions under the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act. The state court must follow federal guidelines in deciding on a division. There is an article on our law for veterans website that discusses the issue in detail. Reading the article may be a good idea. Go to: https://lawforveterans.org/family-law and read the article on dividing military pensions.
