Members of the armed service require special care in divorce proceedings. Our firm handles many military divorces every year.
If you are the spouse of a servicemember, you are entitled to certain protections under the law. You are entitled to continued coverage under TriCare while the case is pending. You are, in many cases, entitled to a percentage of the military member’s BAH. You may be entitled to alimony up and above that amount.
The spouse of a military member is in many cases entitled to a percentage of the military member’s retirement. This is often a very important asset for the non-military spouse. Conversely, the servicemember often wants to protect this very valuable asset.
Military members face the pressure of certain obligations from their chain of command as well. Failure to support the family or pay child support can have devastating effects on the military member’s career.
Custody in military proceedings is a very complex issue. Many times the military member will be deployed regularly and required to relocate several times throughout his/her career. Finding custody arrangements that work with this schedule can be difficult and it takes an experienced attorney to know how to arrange custody agreements that take this into account.
