Get help finding the Right Family Law Lawyer for your case
During a military divorce, the Uniform Services Former Spouse's Protection Act (USFSPA) recognizes that military pay to a spouse or ex-spouse is required. Federal law states that the divorce process needs to be put on hold while the military member is on active service. A family lawyer can help get the process going once active service ends.
When one spouse is in the military, divorce may be complicated as compared to a divorce for an average couple. Some of the complex issues that come up during military divorce and military pay division include:
A family lawyer can help with jurisdiction, or which state the divorce can be filed, child support, child visitation and division of marital property during a military divorce and military pay division. A family lawyer can advise a divorced couple about child support payments since they can be complicated under military pay statements. A family lawyer can also guide you through the process of dividing marital property.
If you are on active duty in the military and you are going through a divorce, a family lawyer can help. Contact Attorney Search Network to be referred to a family lawyer that can assist you with military pay division and inform you of your rights.
