Military couples know that, compared to divorce for nonmilitary couples, there are more issues that need to be addressed when divorce is becoming a reality. Some of these issues include:
- Division of military benefits/pensions, the 10/10 rule
- Continuing military benefits such as access to the commissary or PX and other base services
- Continuation of health care coverage under TRICARE or CHAMPUS
- What jurisdiction should a divorce be filed in?
Determination of Income in a Military Divorce
Accurate determination of income is a large component to determining obligations such as child support and alimony. In military divorces, the issue of accurate income determination is made more difficult by the fact that service members may receive a variety of noncash benefits that are considered income such as BAH and BAQ.
