Wow, this book was a complete waste of money and it also has caused tremendous issues in actually getting benefits for children. The information on Veterans Benefits is completely off. If you follow his legal processes you'll never get the kids their benefits, it actually makes them ineligible for them.
His reliance on the Rose v Rose case is the core of his flaws. The case was about the Veterans Administration failing to make payments. It was about 38 USC 211 for the authoritative statement. Then for enforcement it was based on 42 USC 659 and 662. Both 38 USC 211 and 42 USC 662 have been repealed. The Veterans Administration was basically terminated because of this case and the Department of Veteran Affairs authoritative statement at 38 USC 511 was specifically changed and addressed 3 different statements by the court.
If you follow his process and get the court to include the money under Title 38 as income, the VA will refuse to send it. You are supposed to file an application for apportionment to get the kids the money. If the state uses it for income the VA said they can not use it a second time and makes the kids ineligible. If you send them a garnishment they send you a letter saying they threw it in the trash. I called the Office of General Council and they said this book has caused so many problems in this area the letter they sent me is actually a standardized letter they send multiple times a day. Oh and if you use the money for income in a spousal support award it disqualifies them for all kinds of programs including public assistance and school grants.
Don’t waste your money!

This book has been a great help! I have been able to access pertinent sections related to former-spouse claims on retirement benefits awarded during divorce proceedings. Thank you, Mark E. Sullivan, for your expertise and for allowing access without the steep purchase price for people whose Ex's have already taken most of their money. God bless you and the work you do!
