Can I get half of my spouses retirement and 401K in Washington state in a divorce after 6 years of marriage?
You can get half of your spouse's retirement and 401K as it stands at the time of the divorce. You cannot get anything accrues after the divorce.
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 husband is retired military and his wife is from another country originally but is now a U.S. citizen and he files for a divorce is she entitled to half of his military pension?
Depends on how long they have been married. The origin plays no factor; the state he files for divorce and time they were married is what matters. I think she has to be mar…ried to him for 10 years of his active duty service.

Like most legal questions the answer is maybe. You don't say thestate and in some state you might not. In most states if thepension was divided by a court order called a quali…fied domesticrelations order QDRO for short you would have your interest in theretirement funds earned by your spouse just like your spouse would.Your remarriage would have no bearing on it. Depending on the orderyou may even be entitled to part of his death benefit even if heremarried. Generally your share of the spouses retirement is afraction that is the product of 1/2 of his share earned duringmarriage. But it doesn't have to be. You can agree to just aboutanything. .
