Military disability benefits topic of debate in alimony case

A 42-year-old military veteran has brought his case involving military benefits and alimony payments to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Air Force veteran is hoping that the court will outlaw the use of military disability benefits when determining alimony. The man was married for almost 20 years, and at the time of his divorce, he was earning military disability in the amount of $4,400 per month.

In 2010, a judge ruled that the man was responsible for paying his ex-spouse roughly $1,000 in spousal support. That number was calculated based on the inclusion of the veteran’s military benefits.
