Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you today. I bring nearly 20 years of experience in various legal disciplines, including JAG.You can certainly attempt that. The problem is that courts do not like to reopen closed issues like this. Now, you do have a fact that plays to your advantage, but also one that plays to your disadvantage.First, your husband told you incorrectly, as you know. That could be grounds for reopening if your position is that he knowingly misled you, amounting to fraud.Second, you didn't hire an attorney to help protect your rights. Judges are actually not sympathetic when the issue is that you just didn't know that you were doing it wrong because you didn't hire an attorney. Their position is that it is your responsibility to look after your rights. (I'm not a judge, I am sympathetic...but I'm just explaining what you're up against).So again, yes you can attempt to reopen the case and try to base it on the false information given to you, to get you to agree to a divorce without an equitable division of the retirement. You're going to have to use a lawyer this time though. Reopening a case is not easy.
