Good morning,

I'm sorry to hear of the confusion.

There is no specific code section which speaks to your question. Volumes of case law have held that the percentage of any given pension acquired between marriage and separation, is considered to be marital property. Marital property---whether it be accumulated over a single year of marriage, or a 30 year union, is all subject to division between the divorcing spouses.
