Divorce Cases Setting Precedent in Kentucky
Kentucky military divorce laws has held military retirement pay to be a divisible property asset in USFSPA proceedings.
- 1986 Jones v. Jones, 680 S.W.2d 921 (Ky. 1984); (first case we found)
- 1986 Poe v. Poe, 711 S.W.2d 849 (Ky. Ct. App. 1986): Used the USFSPA law to set the precedent for military retiree benefits to be considered marital property even if they don’t meet the definition of vested retirement.
- 1994 Ky. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 403.190 (1994), expressly defines marital property to include retirement pay benefits
Note: The references on this page will be edited and links added as more Kentucky case information concerning military retiree pay becomes available.
