CA Mil & Vet Code Section 987.02


Notwithstanding Section 987.01, upon the dissolution of marriage or legal separation of a veteran contract purchaser and the veteran’s spouse, an assignment may be made in favor of the nonveteran former spouse at the same rate of interest and upon the same terms and conditions as are provided to veteran purchasers, provided the veteran’s entire beneficial interest is transferred to the spouse and provided there are dependent children of the veteran occupying the property and the spouse agrees to: (1) actually reside in the home and (2) continue to make the payments in the same amount required by the purchase contract. For the purposes of this subdivision, any child of the veteran who is legally adopted or who acquires a separate domicile or marries shall not be considered a dependent child.


Should the veteran retain entire beneficial interest in the property after dissolution or legal separation, the veteran may continue as purchaser provided either the veteran or the former spouse continues to occupy the property.
