Customer Question
I was granted 50% of...
I was granted 50% of my husband military ret. pay as property settlement in 1995. Through the years due to his change in disability, I have been cut off in my payments.
This began in 2000 when I was terminated for the first time. there is an election option by the military member call CRDP and CRSC. Every time he changes to one of these I am terminated in my benefits. This has happened for several years. My question to you is:
Since my divorce settlement was awarded by the Florida Courts. Can he still play with the part of the settlement awarded to me by the court ? I am very upset at this. It has happened three times already through the years .

Hi, My name is Philip. I am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
I am very sorry for this dilemma. The answer depends on the wording of your decree of divorce; but is also a bit more complex. What is his current disability rating?
Also, I'm going to send a phone answers we can speak on the phone, it may make trading information easier

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
