Sorry for the delay. The husband is ex-military and has a pension, he is also employed making perhaps $100,000. He has neglected or refused to provide proof of income or assets (I suppose just because she has not made the required formal demand.) I am assisting her to make that production demand, although I am a licensed lawyer only in Canada. She has agreed to waive spousal support and division of assets in a temporary order issued in Texas to expire on July 30, 2013. He has a house in Texas. She left in fear of her personal safety and that of the 3 children under 8.
How would the court view the acquisition date of a pension. If he had "retired from the armed forces prior to cohabitation, would she be entitled to $0.00? What if he retired a month after cohabitation or marriage then what? What if he got a $100,000 bonus a month following separation. Can you shoot from the keyboard as she needs a general sense of what is reasonable.
