Eligible for ex spouse military benefits


Is there a timeline to file for an ex spouse is deceased military benefits?  My parents were married 38 years (and then) became divorced and she was married to him more than 20 years as he was in the military.

Your question isn't very clear but the VA benefits system has all kinds of time restrictions about when we can file and so on. If you'd like to rephrase your question, I'd be happy to try to offer a better answer.
