Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is*****’ve been practicing law for over ten years and I’m ready to answer your question.
Before we get started, I want you to know that I will respond to your post quickly. If there’s a delay, please note that you haven’t been forgotten. I will be with you as soon as possible. Additionally, you may receive a request for a phone call. If you’d like to chat, I’m more than happy to speak with you. If you’d prefer to text, that’s fine also. How we proceed is up to you.
With that said, I’m sorry to hear that you're going through this. I understand that this situation can be creating a lot of stress and anxiety. We're going to do our best to get you the information that you're seeking.
From what you stated, you're wanting to proceed with obtaining a divorce but want to ensure that any benefits your receive through your husband are not lost. Is that correct?
I haven't heard back from you but wanted to ensure that you received some information. If the marriage lasts for over ten years and there's ten years of overlapping military service, a spouse can obtain retirement benefits directly from dfas. The steps to request direct payment from dfas can be located at https://www.dfas.mil/garnishment/usfspa/apply/.
Does this make sense?
**Please note that all responses are general information and do not form an attorney-client relationship.**
I apologize for the delay. If you'd like a phone call, there should be a pop up that you can accept. Once that's accepted and funded, the site will allow a call to go through.
From what you stated, I'm not sure if you've hired an attorney or not. Can you please verify if you've hired an attorney?
I just wanted to follow up with you to see if you have any additional questions regarding this matter. If so, please let me know. Thanks.
It's been my pleasure to assist you.
