Military bonus question
      #634800 - 02/18/10 04:54 PM

I have learned today from an article in the daily paper that my ex will most likely be receiving bonus pay for extended combat duty that should have been paid during our marriage. I'm guessing that it would be up to 30k and would have greatly influenced my decision making during mediation if I was aware of the pay.
My question is would there be a chance of me being entitled to a portion of this money that was earned during our marriage? If iím not than what stops any company from paying out any kind of bonus after a marriage for service or work during the marriage?

What? You read it in a newspaper? You need real proof. I just read the article and it is not like this was hid intentionally from anyone. It looks like the decision was JUST made by Uncle Sam.

Businesses can pay out bonsuses whenever they feel like it. They are not held to any sort of marital standard, I am sure there are companies out there that intentionally wait til after divorce to pay bonuses.

I see your point. I just wish I would have known about it during mediation. My ex was happy to take half of everything I worked for. I just feel it should have been the same for both sides.

Sounds like no one knew about it.

That could be the case. I'm glad that the soldiers get a little more money for being overseas. They where away from family a very long time. They deserve it.
