Doesn't sound right to me (gold digger shacking up for a year to try claim 1/2 pension for the year). Moving costs would exceed the benefit derived from 6 mths worth of pension payments - or am I missing something here?

I agree, although I do believe there are people who have motives, doing this every year would seem more costly than advantageous.

I did a little bit more research on Division of Pension Benefits due to a marriage breakdown for Canadian military pension and looks like it will be a long time before I see anything because my ex won't sign any separation agreement (we have done more that a few for him) and I don't know how to go about getting a court order since it costs me $350/hour for my lawyer. We are now at trial stage and my lawyer tells me I cannot afford to go to trial unless I do it on my own....

Who is eligible for a division of pension benefits?

Spouses who have divorced or who have been living separate and apart for at least one year, and spouses who have lived in a conjugal relationship for a minimum of one year and who have been living separate and apart for at least one year are eligible. The CF member, pensioner, their spouses or former spouses may apply for a division by making a formal application, which must be accompanied by either:
  • a Court Order issued in Canada or;
  • a written spousal agreement;
which must state that the member’s pension benefits under the Canadian Forces Superannuation Act (CFSA) are to be divided between the member and the spouse or former spouse;
