Military Family Law
The daily pressures of home life are magnified all the more for military families. If a marriage fails or domestic violence is an issue, the laws regarding the military justice system are often complex. Legal issues concerning the preservation or division of military retired pay within the context of State law and federal law concerning Survivor Benefits Plan, Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act (USFSPA), 10 U.S.C. 1408, and all of the other issues that must be addressed when military service is part of a divorce situation require experience and knowledge that is well beyond many who do not routinely deal with military family and divorce law. Our law firm can help you navigate these difficult legal issues.

Whether a family is moving around the country or trying to balance life at home, it is difficult to keep things together. Standard arrangements as to child custody and visitation for civilian families are all too often completely impractical for military families and parents who are service members or who have a child with a military service member. Once a marriage or relationship fails or if domestic violence becomes an issue, the military justice system may often be involved due to the nature and complexity of the laws involved. Other considerations for military personnel include child custody, spousal support, and visitation rights. During a divorce, the federal and state laws which govern potential division of a service member’s retirement and assets require a law firm that possesses considerable and specific legal knowledge and attention to detail of the many interacting and overlapping issues that are involved by virtue of the military service of one or both of the parties.
