Division Of Military Pensions

Various complications arise in military divorces that civilians do not have to face in their divorces. One of the most challenging issues in a military divorce is the division of military pensions and other military retirement benefits.

At The Grinnell Firm, PSC, we represent clients in military divorce matters in Lexington and Florence, Kentucky. As an experienced attorney and former U.S. Navy service member, Eric Grinnell is a lawyer who understands division of assets in divorce, as well as the unique issues involved with military divorce.

Dividing a military pension plan is not the same as dividing retirement benefits in civilian divorces. Our firm can help you navigate all of the complicated issues involved with military pension division, including:

  • Valuating military pension plans: We need to determine the overall value of a pension plan, including long-term interest accrual.
  • Classifying military pensions: Spouses are entitled to a portion of the military spouse's pension plan. Complications can arise when a couple has gotten married after the pension began growing. It is hard to parcel out how much of the pension plan is marital property vs. nonmarital property.
  • Dividing military pensions: We know how to calculate and properly determine equitable separation of pension assets in military divorces.

Whether you are the military service member or the nonmilitary spouse in a divorce, our firm can help protect your interests and make sure you get your fair share of the military pension plan.
