Military Family Law

When a military family goes through a divorce, there are unique circumstances that influence decisions and outcomes.

  • Divorce- What If I am out of country?
  • Military retirement benefits in divorce (Domestic Relations Order)
  • Child support – How is it calculated?
  • Child custody – What happens if you go TDY? What if you are assigned to a foreign country? How do you handle long distance visitation?
  • Spousal support (alimony)
  • Health benefits for children and ex-spouses after divorce
  • Division of property (assets and debts)
  • Post-divorce changes to court orders
