Will my soon to be ex-wife be entitled to any pension I earn after our Florida divorce?
Pensions are considered property. For the time that the individuals were married, and a pension was being added to, that is considered marital property. In a situation where an individual had a pension prior to their marriage, that is considered non marital property, than at the point of when they were married, or the date of their marriage, it becomes marital property. At the date of their divorce it becomes non marital property again. For the time that they’re married, that portion of the pension can be marital property, and it is owned 50/50 by each of the individuals. Again, a qualified divorce attorney really needs to look at these issues so that their rights are protected from both parties.
