GI BILL BENEFITS BELONG TO THE SOLDIER AND CANNOT BE DIVIDED IN A FAMILY LAW CASE

Congress passed the Post-911 GI Bill. It prohibits division of the benefits in a civil proceeding. (38 USC Sec. 3319). Among the benefits are monies for tuition, fees, books and housing for college. These benefits can be transferred from the GI to a child. It is error for a court to allow an opposing spouse or former spouse to receive any benefit from these proceeds. See: Neville v. Blitz, NO. 2011-CA-01613-SCT (9/26/13).
