Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act

Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act

Under the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (USFSPA), ex-spouses of military service members are entitled to a share of their exes’ retirement benefits. Under the state laws of Missouri, Illinois, Kansas and Oklahoma, military retired pay is considered marital property and undergoes division in divorce proceedings.

At Stange Law Firm, PC, our St. Louis military divorce lawyers represent service members and the other party in divorce proceedings and related issues, including division of military pay under the USFSPA. Call our St. Louis office at 314-963-4700 to arrange a confidential 30-minute consultation.

Retired Military Member or Active Duty? We Can Protect Your Rights.

The USFSPA involves the 10/10 rule for military retired pay as well as the Survivor Benefit Plan. Our skilled military divorce attorneys can inform you of your rights after divorce. Whether you are the service member or the non-service member, you likely have many questions about how pay will be divided, when you will receive it and how it will be factored in to your divorce settlement.

Under the USFSPA, former spouses may also continue to receive health care benefits after a divorce if they meet the 20/20/20 requirement — they must prove that the marriage lasted at least 20 years, that the service member served at least 20 years in the military and that the years of service were during the time of the marriage.

Kirk Stange authored a chapter in a book on military divorce through Aspatore Publishing called Strategies for Military Family Law: Leading Lawyers on Navigating Family Law in the Armed Forces . View portions of the chapter by clicking the link above.
