Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Uniformed Services Former Spouse Protection Act ("USFSPA") gives States permission to follow their own laws when dividing military pensions. So, "points earned during the marriage" definition would be based on your State Law. If you can give me the name of your State, I will check to see if there is any specific definition. If there is not, the general rule would control, which would be the date of marriage to the date of divorce.
