Thank you. I expected it to be so. Just need to figure out how to get medical coverage in the divorce. Right now the situation is status quo.
If I am not mistaken, I do get 1 year of transitional medical benifits from the militairy though. Is that not correct?
Medical coverage is important to me due to the fact that he left me with a condition that requires medication for the rest of my life.
ok. Thank you again for your help. I will have to do a lot of thinking.
I am going to have to ride the wave, so to speak and let him do the filing. He does not seem to want to do so. This way I will have my medical benefits and try to go on with my life. It has been this way for 3 years already and I do not have any plans of remarrying.
If I do go thru with the divorce, would I loose 32% of his retirement?
