This is not true.  Attorneys in general do not turn a blind eye on veterans and favor the spouses for the purpose of going after the veteran’s disability pay because most competent attorneys would know that the VA disability pay generally cannot be treated as marital or community property in divorce. Therefore, these attorneys would know that it is an exercise in futility to “go after” VA pay.

Finding representation in a divorce could be challenging for either the veteran or their spouse, especially since contested divorce proceedings tend to cost more. That is why some would just choose to go without representation because it is difficult to find a lawyer who would work for a “promise of future income.”
