Arizona’s QDRO Practice is happy to offer family law attorneys a complimentary Webinar discussing the lessons learned thus far when dividing Military Retired Pay after the December 2016 amendments to the definition of disposable retired pay.
Dividing Military Retired Pay After the 2017 NDAA Amendments: Is Van Loan Dead?
Thursday, November 9, 2017
12 noon – 12:30 pm
The 2017 National Defense Authorization Act changed the definition of “disposable retired pay” in 10 U.S.C. 1408(a)(4) in a way that requires use of monthly retired pay as of the date of divorce, rather than as of retirement, for purposes of dividing military retired pay. This webinar will cover:
- Why (and how) the NDAA modifies, but does not completely kill, the Van Loan formula when dividing military retired pay
- Issues particular to the following situations:
- Pre-retirement v. post-retirement divorce
- Pre-marital service v. no pre-marital service
- The Former Spouse will get less than 50% of the total disposable retired pay
- The Member entered service before v. after 9/1/1980
- Reserve v. Active duty retirement
- Promotions made within 3 years of the date of service in the divorce
We will also provide sample decree and settlement agreement language you can use to address the division of military retired pay, taking account of the above issues.
This Webinar is powered by Zoom, a web conferencing service that enables you to participate on your computer or phone, anywhere you have an internet connection.
