Shalimar, Florida, Military Divorce Lawyer

Elgin Air Force Base Retirement Benefits & Military Pension Attorney 

When one spouse in a divorce case is an active or retired member of the military, a number of specific issues must be addressed. Of particular concern is any military pension or retirement benefits and how they may be divided between spouses. For service members who wish to retire early, this can be an immediate concern to both the retiree and spouse. Of equal concern in military divorce is health insurance coverage for the service member’s spouse. It is extremely important that your attorney have experience with the unique concerns that military couples face when trying to reach an equitable separation agreement.

At my firm, I have years of experience helping members of the armed forces with their divorce issues. I have a comprehensive knowledge of the Uniformed Service Former Spouse’s Protection Act (USFSPA) and how it applies to your case. I also help clients with a variety of custody and visitation issues that can arise when a parent is forced to relocate due to a tour of duty or permanent change of station. Contact my firm to schedule an initial consultation with a skilled military divorce attorney about your case.

Here are some of the military divorce issues we have helped clients resolve in the past:

  • Retirement benefits
  • Health insurance coverage
  • PCS (permanent change of station)
  • Military pensions
  • VA waivers
  • TDY (temporary duty)

Remember, incorrect information about your rights and responsibilities to your spouse is worse than no information at all. If you choose an attorney to represent you who is unfamiliar with the unique issues that can occur in military divorce, it may result in an unfair or incomplete settlement that causes as many problems as it solves. Contact me for experienced military divorce counsel and representation.
