The 20/20/20 Rule: Explained by a Divorce Lawyer

If you have been married to a military service member, you may have heard of the "20/20/20 rule" and wondered how this could impact a military divorce. The 20/20/20 rule refers to a formula by which ex-spouses' military benefits are calculated.

If a couple was married for 20 years from the date of marriage to the date of a final judgment of divorce, and one spouse served for 20 years in the military services during the marriage, the non-military service member spouse is entitled to a greater share of:

  • Medical coverage
  • Disposable retirement pay
  • Commissary benefits
  • Base exchange benefits

Having been married for 20 years during the 20 years of military service, or more, grants the non-military service member spouse a substantially greater share of benefits. Our Jacksonville divorce lawyer can represent military wives and husbands who have divorced and need solid and experienced family law representation to ensure their full benefits and retirement share have been apportioned to them.

Experienced Military Divorce Lawyer in Jacksonville

If you are considering divorce, or have been divorced, you must remember that your remarriage will reduce the amount of benefits you receive if you are the non-military service member spouse. There are other military laws that can come into play when litigating a divorce between couples that include one military service member.

Call today to schedule your initial consultation if you have questions about the 20/20/20 rule or any other concerns pertaining to divorce or custody.
