Our Firm: Your Ally In The Family Court System

Every divorce case has facts, circumstances and other nuances that make it truly unique from any other case. Military divorce cases are no different. That said, there are certain issues that tend to be of special importance in cases where one or both spouses are in the military. These include:

  • Child custody issues: Determining a fair child custody arrangement can be challenging even when both parents live full time in the same town or city. When one or both parents face long deployments and the need to be literally anywhere in the world at any time, a “fair” custody arrangement is especially complicated. Our attorneys are well-experienced in thinking outside the box to maximize our clients’ share of parental time while making sure any arrangement is in a child’s best interest.
  • Dividing military pensions: Especially in longer marriages, pensions and other retirement benefits often become one of the most hotly contested issues. Whether you are the holder of a military pension or a spouse seeking future financial security, we can guide you to a resolution that protects what is fairly yours.
  • Dividing other assets: Because of frequent relocations, military divorce cases often revolve less around certain assets — such as an owned home — and more on other types of assets. We will identify what is most important to you and work diligently to see that you are treated fairly when it comes to dividing your marital assets.
