I am the former spouse of a military member(Army). I am quite sure he is about to retire in the next year or so. It is in our divorce decree that I am to receive monthly payments from his retirement(a low percentage, but a percentage nonetheless). I need to know how soon beforehand can I send in the required paperwork? I have the paperwork filled out & ready to go, but was afraid of sending it in too early.
Also, I know he is required to tell me of his retirement a certain amount of time beforehand. Take my word oh this, he has no intention of telling me that. He tells me next to nothing as it is. What would happen if I turned in the paperwork after he retired? Do I lose out?
