Again, thanks for responses–
When remarking that a properly executed SA could be “plead in defense” at trial (assuming I was sued for divorce after the SA was signed),does that mean a trial would be unneccessary or dismissed in that case(assuming nothing substantive had changed)?
If a Bankruptcy court doesn’t decide what someone can afford to pay (alimony, child support), if BR is neccessary, does one then go back to the divorce court to decide this issue?
My specific (former) question about Federal retirement benefits concerns those other than social security–i.e., defined contribution and other benefits. Is there anything about the fact that they’re in the federal retirement benefit system that precludes them from being considered in ED? If they are considered in ED then, as I understand it, I am entitled to the
future value of those amounts contributed to spouses’ own plans during the period we were married, once spouse retires and begins to collect them (unless I agree to give that right up in exchange for something else–I understand I’d probably have to formally sign those rights away
in order to “exchange” them).
