Service members face many unique circumstances during divorce. A service member may be entitled to several different types of pay, incentives and retirement. Generally speaking, military retirement pay is considered marital property which may be divisible during a divorce. However, retirement benefits that are based on disability are not. There are different consideration for voluntary separation versus involuntary separation incentives. Reenlistment bonuses may also be a consideration when a military spouse is divorcing.
