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 payment will be divided, when you will receive it, and how it will be factored into 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.
