If you have been married for ten years and are divorcing will you be entitled to half of your spouse's pension?
yes No...not by default -you might have been married 10 years, but spent 9 of those years overseas, living away from your spouse working a $400,000 per annum …job, while your spouse taught grade school for $34,000 per year and kept the kids. Do you think you'd get awarded 50% of a school teacher's pension in this case? Slim chance! ..Such is a very often misconception when dealing with the military especially. People think that just because you've been married 10 years that a spouse (usually the wife) *automatically* gets 50% of the man's retirement. This is furthest from the truth. What is true is that once married 10 years, the spouse (usually the wife) qualifies to have her court ordered portion of the retirement check (if anything) sent directly to HER... verses relying on her former husband to give up her share monthly as ordered by the court. You can be married 20 years, and the court award you nothing out of your spouse's retirement. It totally depends on the contributing factors of the divorce, details of the marriage, etc. You can be married 15 years and the court award you only 5% of your spouse's retirement. *Remember... just because you're "eligible" for something, doesn't meant that you'll get it awarded to you automatically in court.
During a divorce you are entitled to half of all assets that were acquired during the marriage. You are not entitled to anything that was owned before the marriage took pl…ace.
Depending on which state you live in, the answer varies. In some states, marital property is considered to be "community property" which means that the couple shares the owner…ship equally in any property acquired after the marriage, with the exception of gifts and inheritances to an individual spouse. In other states, marital property is divided according to "equitable property" law, which means that the judge starts out with the assumption of a 50/50 split, then looks at each person's circumstances (such as their ability to work and earn a living, their contribution to the assets acquired during the marriage, etc.) and adjusts the numbers accordingly. Thus in an equitable property division it is probable that the spouse who contributed more or who will require more to survive may receive more property in the settlement than the other spouse. Any property that each of you already owned before the marriage (such as your own car, your jewelry, retirement accounts, etc.) are not considered part of the marital property to be divided. You can look up whether your state is a community property state or a equitable property state online. The bottom line is that you are only due half (maximum) of the value of property acquired after you married in the divorce settlement. Other financial considerations such as child support or alimony are separate matters to the property issue. For a more accurate answer you need to consult with a divorce attorney in your jurisdiction.
If a business is started by one spouse during a marriage is the other spouse entitled to part of that business if the marriage ends in divorce?
Yes because it was made and purchased since the marriage. Gifts, if proven to be for only one spouse (like a car your dad gives specifically to you) can be excluded, but… anything built during the marriage, or acquired together during the marriage, is all fair game. Get an attorney if you're dealing with this issue.

If you're in the US, generally you're entitled to half of the pension that accrued during the marriage.
It depends on the laws of your state. Assuming there are no children involved - just the two of you....generally speaking, what you bring into the marriage, you get to take ou…t of the marriage. If you owned property going in, or if you inherited money, or if you had investments...you keep them. But there may be conditions. If you owned the marriage home when you two got together, but your wife's income contributed to the care, maintenance and improvement - she would be entitled to a percentage of any increase in equity during that five years. She could also be entitled to a percentage of the growth in your investments during that period. But, she could also be responsible for debt incurred during the marriage. Find a good attorney.

Is a spouse in Florida entitled to a police's pension when they divorce even if they have only been married for 4 years?
NO and if it is that should be a crime.
Depends on when the other person earned the pension, how long you were married and what state you live in.
Both parties' pension and retirement accounts are considered assets that are divided in the divorce agreement or trial, much like a bank account or piece of physical property.… If you are awarded a portion of your husband's pension, you are entitled to it. If you are not awarded any part of it, you are not entitled to it.
