My husband is a retired military and he filed for divorce in January 2016. He has been fighting on giving me my portion of his military retirement
from the beginning. In April 2016, he changed his retirement to the CRSC
/CRDP and now states that he isn't required to give me any of his retirement. Can he change this marital asset in the middle of a divorce?
JA: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this. Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?
JA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: Yes. He filed and we have completed all of the financial declarations in March 2016 and we were waiting for mediation in May 2016 when he told me he made the change in April 2016.
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: I was told that we are going to have to go court to restore the original military retirement because he changed it in the middle of a divorce action
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Military Lawyer should know?
Customer: Only that he filed with the original military retirement then changed it in the middle of the divorce
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Military Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
