What is the 10/10 Rule in Military Divorce?

Similar to a civilian divorce, parties in a military divorce are required to separate marital property, including assets and debts. Assets in a military divorce include the service member’s retirement pay. The 10/10 rule in military divorce determines who pays the former spouse his or her share of the retirement pay.

 

Under the Uniformed Service Former Spouses’ Protection Act of 1982, the Defense Finance and Accounting Services is authorized to make payment directly to the former spouse when the following conditions are met.

 

  • The marriage lasted at least 10 years.
  • The marriage and military service have overlapped for a minimum of 10 years.

 

When the above statements are found to be true, benefits are paid directly to the former spouse. When the above statements are found to be untrue, the payment of benefits must be arranged through the ex-spouse in another way.
