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.
