    Exclamation Military Divorce and Separations Pay


    I just wanted to know more about separations pay. I am currently in MD and my soon to be ex is in the military. He has been in the military for 8 years and due to get very soon. We have only been married 1 year and have 2 children together. Part of my husbands separation contract, includes a separations pay. I know its only been a short time of marriage, but the extra money from the separations pay could go a long way to help support our children in the long run, esp. seeing I am not working (full-time mom). Would I be entitled to any of the separations pay? Also, in MD we have to be separated for 1 year before they grant a final divorce, and we would be getting out of the military before our divorce is final.

    Odds are the pay would be deemed earned during the marriage and thus part of the marital estate. The rest depends on the details of the case.
