military divorceQuestion:

Are my VA benefits subject to equitable distribution?

Answer: 

Please be advised that I am barred in Pennsylvania and will answer your question based on my experience in Pennsylvania.

In this state, in general, VA benefits are not subject to equitable distribution but are taken into consideration in calculating spousal and child support.

However, VA benefits may be considered in equitable distribution in certain circumstances, such as if the funds have been commingled with marital funds.

You should schedule an initial consultation with an attorney barred in your state at the earliest opportunity to discuss the facts of your case and arguments for your case further.
