Military Divorces Require Special Considerations

Retain a military divorce attorney in Ocean City or Shalimar, FL who understands your needs

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 military divorce attorney has experience with these unique concerns.

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 a military divorce, it may result in an unfair or incomplete settlement that causes as many problems as it solves.
