Divorce And Child Custody Representation
One of the most critical aspects of a military divorce is determining how much of the military retirement plan the nonmilitary spouse is entitled to receive. This is a complex process with regulations that are unique to the military and each state. Military pensions include survivor benefit plans, health care benefits and other benefits.
We are familiar with the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act that allows for division of military pensions. In addition, we can draft a Court Order Acceptable for Processing (COAP) for dividing pensions of federal employees and civil service employees.
Divorce Proceedings During Deployment
When service members are on active duty and/or stationed overseas, they need a lawyer to protect their financial and parental rights. The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act allows members on active duty to stay divorce and child custody proceedings while they are stationed far away from their families. This helps protect their rights in child custody, visitation and child support cases.
We represent personnel from military bases such as Fort Meade, the U.S. Naval Academy, Andrews AFB, Aberdeen Proving Ground and the Coast Guard Yard. We also represent federal government employees from agencies and organizations such as:
- National Security Agency (NSA)
