Greetings. What a marvelous question. My answer is “it depends.” I would argue that the military pension income would contribute to the calculation of child support. I may also argue that the military pension may contribute to determining alimony, but only if the other spouse was not entitled to a division of the same. There would be other factors also.
Yes, I think that the other court determination would affect us here, as we have to give orders from other courts good faith. Timing of the military pension is always an issue, but I would have to see the time frame for a better determination. Best of luck!
