Bill would exempt veterans’ payments from divorce

— CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Republican state senators in West Virginia have proposed a bill that would exclude veterans’ disability payments from spousal support requirements.

State law dictates that divorce courts take into account income from any source when setting levels of spousal and child support. This bill would create a special exemption for veterans’ disability payments.
