Creating Child Custody Solutions That Account For Military Service

It can be difficult for military members to adhere to visitation schedules due to frequent moves and deployments. We can help you develop a child custody plan that allows for deployment or includes provisions for relocation. Your existing family care plan may also affect your child custody arrangement.

Dividing Military Pensions And Benefits In Divorce

The length of the marriage is a strong determining factor in a nonmilitary spouse’s entitlement to military benefits. If you were married for at least 10 years, and that time overlapped with any 10 years of military service, the Defense Finance and Accounting Service may be directed to pay benefits directly to the nonmilitary spouse. Spouses of former military personnel who were married for at least 20 years overlapping with 20 years of full service are usually entitled to full pension and benefits. We can evaluate your specific circumstances and work to protect your interests, whether you are a military member or the spouse of a military member.

Addressing Situations Of Domestic Violence

The stresses of military life can exacerbate incidents of domestic abuse. If you have been the victim of family violence, we can help you seek appropriate protective orders to protect you and your children. If existing orders are breached, we can advocate on your behalf to enforce them.
