Question: My husband was previously married in Puerto Rico and divorced there as well from his ex wife. Our previous visit at the legal office on post verified whether or not the ex spouse is entitled to any percentage of his retirement.

Question: I am currently active duty 19 years. Divorced 2 years ago. Spouse is eligible for a share of my retirement. However the decree states I must begin to pay her share of my retirement beginning the month I am eligible to retire. It was based of a % share. No lawyer or my military office can give me how much that share is in dollars they tell me they will know when I retire. How can I pay her monthly when no one knows the amount until I retire? Is it even Legal that I have to pay her retirement if I haven’t retired? Did I not get good representation?
