plumerialost:Does anyone know what the percentage of pay you are allowed in child support and alimony from an active duty member? Thanks!
Child support and alimony are not affected by the TYPE of job one has. These are STATES issues/laws/precedents (though there are a couple federal laws on the books that are there supposedly to protect the servicemember).
You will need to look at your state's (the one that you are filing in) child support calculator and what the current precedents/laws are regarding alimony.
The ONLY positive about being divorced from a Servicemember is that the money can come DIRECTLY through DFAS.
Thanks. I was just wondering b/c STBXH said it could only be a certain percentage and so did my lawyer's paralegal. She it was a military thing. I will look into it more.
