I need to know if you have any experts in Military law that could tell me what my rights are as the spouse of an Air Force Veteran. I am currently separated from my husband of 30 years (22 of those years he spent on active duty).What are my financial rights as far as his military retirement goes. He is still living in Georgia, (where he retired) I am in Indiana, our home state, where we met & married.Also, do the laws in Georgia differ from those in Indiana regarding separation or possibly divorce? We have one 17-yr-old daughter, who is in GA with him. The house they are living in is in both our names.Help, please.Linda Grabos
