USFSPA and your military divorce

41537249_S.jpgUSFSPA refers to the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act, which was an Act established to ensure that the former spouses of individuals who serve in the military would receive a share of the retirement benefits that said former spouse earned from service. Essentially, under Missouri law, the retirement pay of those who serve or have served in the military is considered marital property, and just like other marital property, it is subject to being divided during a divorce.

This is just one area of the law that affects how a military divorce can play out, and further examples of how military divorce differs from a civilian divorce. For some members of the military, the retirement benefits received from service are only part of their assets, and there could be retirement benefits from a career pursued outside of the military as well. The ways in which all of these different assets mix together in a divorce can be extremely complex.

To make matters even more difficult, the laws regarding military divorce are not the same in every state, and depending on where you live or where you are stationed, you could file for divorce in one of the multiple states. Having an understanding of the military divorce laws in each state can completely change the landscape of your divorce proceedings.
