The Ten-Year Rule in Military Divorce
How the Ten-Year Rule Works in Jacksonville, FL
The "ten-year rule" is one of the most commonly misunderstood concepts when dealing with divorce law for military personnel. It is commonly misperceived that in order to collect part of a spouse's military pension, the parties must have been married for 10 years prior to their divorce.
The ten-year rule, however, simply dictates the method in which a divorced spouse of a military serviceperson will receive his or her share of their spouse's military pension. Under certain situations, the spouse will either receive their share directly from the ex-spouse or from the military by way of a deduction from pay.
