Can My Disability Be Counted As Income For Divorce/child Support?

Question

I've done some research and read what the USC says on how no one can attach benefits to any hearing.

And I know the Supremacy Clause states that when state and federal law conflict federal law always wins. So how is it I'm being told I have to claim it as income, and it will be calculated into there crappy formula.... Please help!

I believe everyone should support their children

both financially and emotionally - we need to be there

for our children.

 

Here's lots of links in regards to the OP question.

 

http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=va+disability+benefits+%2Bchild+support

We do support the children above and beyond the court order. Pay 100% of air fare to include an extra round trip ticket because the mom thinks the children will be abducted, even though children are 8 and 11. 

Every time kids visit we spend $250 plus because all clothes sent are way to small and not proper for the climate.

During summer visits they're enrolled in summer camp 3X's a week, while we still pay her monthly support of $1100. In addition to camp, they have weekly horse riding lessons, skating lessons, 4-H camps, and karate. 

Anything extra for school we end up footing those bills as well. Oh, mom screwed up the insurance for a surgery and now expects us to pay the full $5k immediately.

When with mom they have ZERO extracurricular activities. So as far as supporting children both emotionally and medically, we can't afford much more unless we want to loose everything.

This is about a 5 year old post.  Basically, a wife can call VA and tell VA she has a court ordered child support of xxx dollars per month.  The VA will tell the wife to send a copy of this court order, and VA will "apportion" the applicable xxx dollars per month.  In other words the VA will withold xxx dollars from the Vet, and deposit this money to the wifes account, per the court order. 

Whether we like it or not, the VA does this.  

The VA wont "apportion" mastercard, if you did not pay that bill, and they wont "apportion" your doc bill either.  But child support or alimony will result in a near immediate apportionment of your funds.  

The regulation is here:

21.330 Apportionment.

(a) General. Where in order, VA will apportion subsistence allowance in accordance with § 3.451 of this title, subject to the limitations of § 3.458 of this title. If the veteran is in receipt of benefits at the Chapter 30 rate, VA will not apportion these benefits.
(Authority: 38 U.S.C. 5307(c))
(b) Effective date. The effective date of apportionment will be as prescribed in § 3.400(e) of this title.
(Authority: 38 U.S.C. 5307(c))
(c) Child adopted out of family. Where evidence establishes that a veteran is the natural parent of a child or children legally adopted outside of the veteran's family, VA will apportion in favor of the child or children only that additional amount of subsistence allowance payable on account of the existence of the child or children. The veteran is not entitled in his or her own right to the additional amount of subsistence allowance payable for the child because of the existence of the child unless the veteran is contributing to the child's support.
(Authority: 38 U.S.C. 5307(c))
(d) Veteran convicted of a felony. The subsistence allowance of a veteran in a rehabilitation program after October 17, 1980, may not be apportioned if the veteran is incarcerated because of conviction for a felony.

Does the VDPA still stand as offical?

Can VA benifits & SSI be used when deciding a child support amount here in FL? If it those are the source only income.

 

I have look and still find different answers.

Yes. They can't garnish it directly but they can use it to figure support,

At least you won't have to worry about Writing the Check or falling behind on your monthly Support Payments. Between the VA and the Child Support Division at the Court, your kid's should be well provided for through age 18 or until they get out of college.

Your wife will never be able to call you a Dead-Beat Dad.

Let us know what the final Monthly Number is.

    • Precedent Setting CAVC cases cited in the M21-1
      A couple months back before I received my decision I started preparing for the appeal I knew I would be filing.  That is how little faith I had in the VA caring about we the veteran. 

      One of the things I did is I went through the entire M21-1 and documented every CAVC precedent case that the VA cited. I did this because I wanted to see what the rater was seeing.  I could not understand for the life of me why so many obviously bad decisions were being handed down.  I think the bottom line is that the wrong type of people are hired as raters.  I think raters should have some kind of legal background.  They do not need to be lawyers but I think paralegals would be a good idea.

      There have been more than 3500 precedent setting decisions from the CAVC since 1989.  Now we need to concede that all of them are not favorable to the veteran but I have learned that in a lot of cases even though the veteran lost a case it some rules were established that assisted other veterans.

      The document I created has about 200 or so decisions cited in the M21-1.   Considering the fact that there are more than 3500 precedent cases out there I think it is safe to assume the VA purposely left out decisions that would make it almost impossible to deny veteran claims.  Case in point. I know of 14 precedent setting decisions that state the VA cannot ignore or give no weight to outside doctors without providing valid medical reasons as to why.  Most of these decision are not cited by the M21.

      It is important that we do our due diligence to make sure we do not get screwed.  I think the M21-1 is incomplete because there is too much information we veterans are finding on our own to get the benefits we deserve

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.

  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.
