Alimony and VA Disability


I’m 100% T & P.  Assuming this statement is correct “The court can take up to 50% of VA disability check before VA considers a hardship to veteran.” Does this mean 50% off what I receive? Or does it mean 50% after my monthly bills? If you could also give me the legal document that has this information it would be greatly appreciated.

The issue of who gets what as a divorce proceeds is way too complex to address in a brief answer. Every situation is greatly different than the next so you would benefit by studying the broad concepts that affect your divorce and apply those to your own unique event. This article goes into some depth about garnishment and apportionment of veterans benefits and how each will affect divorce outcomes.
