A: I'm not sure what you are asking. You aren't going to get any payments while married. If you are asking if you divorce will you get a portion of his monthly payments, the answer is it depends. It can be considered income for child support purposes.

A: This depends. Retirement income is property division, not alimony. Depending on your age and the length of marriage these can have some interplay. Talk to an attorney about what your expectations should be upon filing for divorce.
