By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

In a Florida divorce, a pension is often a prized asset, especially when there are few others to divide.

What Is Imputed Income?

Military Pensions and the USFSPA

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

During their service, military servicemembers accrue points and service time toward their pension vesting, as many employees do with their employer.
