Noblesville Indiana Divorce LawyerQuestion:

My ex-wife is requesting my GI Bill education allotment be used to pay for our oldest child’s college education.

While I certainly want to contribute, I was planning on using the GI Bill to pay for my college and help our other children who will need college assistance as well.

Can my GI Bill education allotment be used for my children’s college expenses?

Baltimore Maryland divorce lawyerQuestion:

I am in the military and agreed to pay half of my children's college costs in my marital settlement agreement.

I would like to use my GI Bill for my child's first two years of college and let my ex-wife pay the second two years. My ex-wife says that would not be fair, that we should split the cost of the last two years since I am not paying "out of my pocket" the cost associated with his college.

How does the law treat this situation?

military former spouse protection actBy Tara N. Brewer

Special to

After 20 years of credible service, military members are eligible for retired pay benefits.

If that military member faces divorce, one of the largest concerns is how those benefits will be distributed, which is outlined by the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act (USFSPA).

Before 1981, the courts disagreed on whether these benefits would be considered community property. Community property is defined as money eligible for division during a divorce.

However, an amendment in 1982 called the USFSPA clearly outlined how retired pay benefits would be distributed.
