While military divorce functions similarly to standard divorce, there are several special considerations involved regarding how and where the case is filed, the process for dividing marital assets, spousal maintenance and child support provisions and other concerns. While military divorces bring with them additional concerns, they also offer a number of benefits to military wives, specifically through the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (USFSPA). If you select a divorce attorney who is not familiar with military divorces, you may end up losing out on important benefits to you and your children. The complexities surrounding military divorce require the skill and attention of an attorney familiar with these regulations and one who has experience handling military divorce. Hiring an attorney who has the requisite experience with military specific issues can make all the difference in the outcome of your divorce and most importantly in the lives of our children. Whether you are currently serving in the U.S. military as a service member or a military spouse, HRK Family Law can help you protect your interests in divorce and other family law-related issues.
