US Supreme Court weighs in on military benefits issue

If you or your ex is in the military and you divorced here in California, chances are that military retirement funds were included in your property division agreement. In accordance with community property laws in this state, you most likely agreed or were ordered to split those funds in half when they took effect. However, the non-military party may not actually receive what was promised.
