Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
All years that you were married, common law or otherwise, during which time he was earning a military pension will allow you to get a percentage of his retirement if you divorce.
The 10 year issue is only to determine if the military pays you directly or whether he is ordered by the divorce court to pay you after he receives his monthly benefit from the military.
But all years of marriage count toward the 10 year rule as well.
