    Question Marriage Money

    Advertisements
    I have a friend who is going through a divorce.. she was very nieve and did not know much of anything about the military. She never knew her SO was getting extra money for being married to her. He never told her he was getting xtra money to support her. He was stationed in Japan, she was back home in cali living with her parents. Her parents are supporting her. she doesnot have anyyyyy access to the money. not his bank or credit cards or anything.

    They have come to a conclusion to divorce, when i was talking to her about it, i brought up the money issue.. she had NO IDEA! now she is thinking of confronting her husband about the money.

    Can someone tell me exactly how much money he is making for being married to her? and being seperated?? i tried looking it up but im not sure if my information is correct...

    He is in the marine corps and is a LCpl.

    Any info would be appreciated..

    You could look up BAH rates for his rank.

    the only money he is getting is BAH with dependants and maybe seperation pay- the FSH is 250 dollars a month and the BAH ( if he is getting it ) since he is overseas he may only be getting OHA.

    there is no way to tell with out her getting a court order for his pay stubs.

    NO not technically- the AD member is the wage earner- not the spouse-

    he gets BAH to help support the added costs associated with having a dependant, but she is not "entitled" to any of his pay and allowances with out a court order.

    yes- he should be responsible to help out- but with out a court order no branch can make him do it.

    each branch has a guideline for spousal support- but it is only a recomendation-

    she needs to seek legal advice from an attorney familiar with military rules and pay.

    if they are married, and he is overseas, he is required to pay her so much a month to help her support herself. i cant remember what my DH said it was, i think he said like 40% of the pay or something. i would double check to get the percent right.

    Sorry dont have any advice, do they have children? He has his Pay, family seperation pay, and maybe some BAH. Did they get married before or after his orders to Japan? If it was before, did she get sponsored to move with him? They're is a lot of possible answers, but also a lot of technicalities.
