I receive 65% of my retirement. My ex-spouse received 35%. The ruling specifically included my portion of military retirement for child support computation, and specifically excluded my ex-spouse's portion of my military retirement for child support computation.
My attorneys filed for reconsideration of the trial judge. She just affirmed her earlier ruling.
The Court of Civil Appeals affirmed (no - comment) the trial Judge's ruling.
I have AL Rule 32 sitting right in front of me (given to me by my attorneys), and I read it the same exact way you and my attorneys read it.
I did not have an extra $25k lying around to take this issue to the AL Supreme Court, but I know this ruling may effect veterans paying child support across the state of Alabama.
This ruling will definitely continue to effect me as I have a 15 year old son with a disability who will most likely receive child support the rest of his life.
Thanks Mr SImmons. Have a great day.
