Military Divorce

Considering a Divorce?

Military Divorce in Texas

Unfortunately, the divorce rate for military marriages is significantly high because of the impositions placed on active duty personnel. Travel out of state, overseas, and frequent moving around places a great deal of stress on couples, their children and the institution of marriage.

Sadly, when there is a great distance between military personnel and their spouses for extended periods of time, people can grow apart which can subsequently lead to a divorce.

Although military divorce is unique compared to a civilian divorce, still many of the same issues need to be addressed such as:

Unlike civilian divorces, military personnel have special circumstances which complicate divorce matters. Whether you are dealing with someone being overseas, or in another state, it can affect important issues such as child custody and visitation, not to mention costly travel arrangements. For this reason, it's extremely important to have the assistance of a highly skilled divorce attorney throughout the process of a military divorce.

Know Your Rights in a Military Divorce

In my practice, I have encountered military personnel who had major concerns about what would happen to their military pension, retirement benefits, and other issues relating to child custody, child support and visitation. These issues are not only relevant to active duty personnel, but they also apply to retired military personnel and basically the longer the service, the greater the benefits.

For those retired military personnel, I can address the range of benefits that are available to them and their divorcing spouses. Military pensions and retirement benefits are considered part of the marital estate and subject to division under Texas's equitable distribution laws.

I can assist you with all the legal aspects of a military divorce including those areas regarding a military pension and how it is divided in the event your marriage is legally dissolved.
