My question is will be he able to do this possibleJA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: The only thing I can say at this point is he wants half of my retirement, he wants full medical, and the sbp. I told him he can have everything but those things. I just want out. He has accused me of adultery. But the military dismissed it. He said I have not financially supported him which was not true. On top of of this he has constantly allowed him family members to call my command as well with these allegations.JA: OK got it.

So, I was told no I am not allowed to touch military pay-

so, I was told no I am not allowed to touch military pay- but he walked out on me, I'm disabled-I, not his kids, have two mentally challenged / disabled sons. I may lose my home. He is still on mortgage and deed, and has not moved all his stuff. I know I can get alimony but not sure how much, but what about his SS income and VA disability? Not mine either? How do they figure out the alimony?
