Welcome to Hadit!

There are a couple of factors to it.

Situation 1: Let's assume you were already rated 30% or higher when you got married. Dependency payments would begin from the first day of the month following the date you got married.

Situation 2: Let's assume you were already married, but recently was awarded a 30% or higher rating. Dependency payments would begin from the first day of the month following the date you were awarded the 30% rating.

 

Example: Got married January 15, 2018. Filed dependency paperwork promptly. Today you get notified the spousal dependency award was granted. Your spousal dependency payments would begin February 1, 2018. You should get retroactive payments back through that date.

 

I hope this helps!

The effective dates for dependents is similar to the effective dates for other stuff.  Its the later of the "facts found", or the date you applied.  

Example:

    You apply for dependents comp for your spouse, child 1, child 2.  Child 2 becomes 18, so his benefits drop off because of facts found.  If you want comp for the 18 year old, you have to demonstrate he is a full time student, and you must apply again.  (facts found).

The effective date for  dependents "should" be the same as the date you applied for benefits UNLESS you didnt supply birth certificates and apply for dependent comp when you first applied.  

If the VA sent you a letter requesting dependent information with your VARO decision, and you failed to timely send it in (within a year of VARO decision), then you wont get dependents benefits until you did send it in.
