According to Florida Law, a former spouse is not entitled to receive benefits accrued after the dissolution of the parties’ marriage:
Darwin is correct that current law provides that a spouse should not receive benefits accrued after dissolution of the parties’ marriage. See Boyett v. Boyett, 703 So.2d 451 (Fla. 1997) (valuation of a vested retirement plan is not to include any contributions made after the original judgment of dissolution); Olsen v. Keefer, 714 So.2d 1165 (Fla. 1st DCA 1998) (former wife was not entitled to portion of husband’s retirement benefits accrued after dissolution); Paris v. Paris, 707 So.2d 889 (Fla. 5th DCA 1998) (former wife should not share in any increase in salary earned by the former husband after the dissolution for purposes of calculating pension benefits). See also Bain v. Bain, 553 So.2d 1389 (Fla. 5th DCA 1990), approved, Boyett (valuation of retirement plan should exclude any contributions made after original final judgment of dissolution).
