Your ex-wife to be cannot obtain any of your disability compensation from VA. The only thing that can happen is the judge can and probably will take into account your disability compensation as income, which will affect the amount of alimony you have to pay your ex-wife.

The only thing she can really do is request that the money you receive additionally for your 17 year old son be appoirtioned to her (asumming your receive a 30% rating or higher). However, she must request this in writting with your local regional office. The VA will then make that decision. From the situations I have seen, the VA more often than not lets the veteran keep that portion of his disability knowing that he/she pays child support.

Your VA disability compensation is safe, your ex can'y mess with it!

Thanks Vike17,

I have custody of my child. He wants to remain with me. I have another question.

If I called regional and asked them to manage my financial affairs would that make it harder for her to get it? Also, generally, how do they determine how much money it takes for you to live on? How do they pay the bills and if I need more money how do they evaluate my request?

Thanks Randy

If you have custody of your son, then your ex-wfie cannot ask VA to apportion the amount of money you receive for your dependent!Hell, I would imagine that, since you have custody of your son, your ex might have to pay you alimony! That would make your qestion of being able to manageyour finances a moot point.

However, as far as being deemed unable to handle your finances by VA, that would be something your doctor would have to answer. I assume you have a mental disability rated by VA, and it's probably at 100%, right? I have never heard of VA deeming someone unable to handle their finacial affairs say with a 50% or 70% rating.

As far as your other questions, I'm sorry I don't have any answers for those. Each state has their own laws ect...

In my opinion you need to talk to a lawyer. If you are surviving on disability and are close to a Law School they will help you using sliding scale or maybe even free. Every State is different and we have seen it happen before that when the Judge looks at income he will order you to pay.

On the bright side if you are disabled and your wife is not she is probably out of luck. I am sure that this is very hard on you and your son. I know in Dallas that the VA Social Worker had a volunteer lawyer to help Veterans with problems like yours.

Since you were married for a long time maybe your solution would be to help with what you can till she gets a job with some sort of time limit. If she walked out I am pretty sure she had something put away most people don't leave completely broke.

Good Luck

Va would have to adjudicate you incompetent and assign a fiduciary to handle your finances. They would not do so directly

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
