Who Said Divorce Would be Cheap (or Fair)?

When the former wife of a retired federal employee was given 53% of his monthly annuity payment, the retired fed was unhappy with OPM so he appealed to MSPB and then to a federal court. After all the litigation: the federal retiree gets less than his former wife.

Retirement + Divorce = Expensive

Divorce can be expensive. This retired federal employee not only gave part of his annuity to his former wife, he also got notified by OPM that he had not been paying enough and that he also owed her more than $24,000 in additional money.
