In November, my former spouse will be retiring from the national guard. We have a stipulation and order for division of respondent's army
national guard retirement
We were married 10/16/82, separated 9/6/05, and dissolution of marriage on 5/31/07.
While married thru separation
, he did 2 full time years Army, and discharged 1984. Then joined the national guard in 1985 and did 1 full year and the rest were just drill weekends etc.
I do not understand how to calculate how the court divided the retirement.
"Petitioner and Respondent were married for a portion of the Respondent's military service. The former souse is awarded a percentage of the member's disposable military retired pay, to be computed by multiplying 50% time a fraction. The numerator of which is 2256 reserve
retirement points earned during the marriage, and the denomintor is the member's total number of reserve retirement points earned".
my calculation comes out to about .34%, but it must be 34%. I don't know. Can you figure it out?
Also, we divorcing, my ex, threatened me not to touch his military retirement. Well, he got have of my retirement. Should I be concerned?
