I was married to a military personal years. the final

Customer Question
I was married to a...
I was married to a military personal for 12 years. the final divorce degree stated that I am eligible for a portion of the retirement pay. The divorce paper did not state a percentage or a fix amount My ex has retired after 20 years from the army. I applied and was told to go back to the court and have the judge make a clarify order to include percentage or fixed amount. I have gone to court not once, but twice and the judge is telling me that I only qualified to receive what was aquired during the time of married. My ex has told the judge that by his calculation, I only qualified for $169.00 per month. I did not accept this amount because I know that its not right and he can't calculate nothing. Can you help me and tell me what is the rights for an ex spouse that was married for over 10 years

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.
