Military Divorce Archives

Do I Need a Forensic Accountant?

Many of the people who come to our office seeking a divorce are doing so for the first time. Some of them have a good sense of the shape of their marital estate--they understand their assets and debts, and only need their lawyers to help them reach a just and fair division of their assets and debts.

No More New Year's Resolutions!

So here we are at January again. It's hard to believe that another year has gone by and that it is 2016. January. A time for fresh starts. A time to assess where we've been and reassess where we are going. A time to make those dreaded New Year's Resolutions.

Legal enforcement of post-divorce support for service members

When it comes to families and the military, there are two considerations that couples must consider: military life is not for every marriage, and divorce is more complex when one or both members of a marriage serve or have served in the military. The sad fact is that the difficult life of a service member can take its toll on a marriage, and if a military couple decides to divorce, they should be prepared for the difficulties they may face.

Family care plans can help military parents

There are many things that can make a military divorce difficult, even before you consider all of the specific issues that military couples face such as division of military retirement. Consistently being stationed in different states can affect where you file, and deployment can make it difficult or impossible to make it to court hearings. However, the divorce itself is only one part of the battle. Unfortunately for military members, issues of family law often affect them for the rest of their lives.

Legal assistance for Texas military divorces

San Antonio, Texas is the proud home of many military bases, including Randolph Brooks and Fort Sam Houston for example. There are many proud servicemen and servicewomen who call San Antonio their home, and it's possible that some choose to remain in Texas even after they retire from the military. We are proud of our servicemen and women, and that is why we are proud to represent these individuals when they are going through difficult divorces.

Legal assistance is crucial for military families

It is no secret that military life is hard. The men and women of the armed forces endure grueling exercises and training programs in order to achieve the level of fitness and dedication required by the military, and then they are sent to different bases or deployed to foreign countries in order to defend the freedoms we hold so dear. Unfortunately, as difficult as the working conditions are for someone in the armed forces, the circumstances of their home lives can be equally difficult.

How will divorce affect my military retirement pension?

Being in the military comes with many benefits, such as pensions, and these issues will affect divorce proceedings. They are part of the reason that military divorce is so much more complex and different from civilian divorce. Like every other part of a marriage, these benefits must be divided in a way that the court determines to be fair and equal to both parties.

Special laws for military divorce

The actual concept of divorce is the same for military members as it is for civilians: a court will oversee divorce proceedings to ensure a split in assets and child custody/support that is fair to both parties and in the best interests of the child. However, the actual divorce process is significantly more complex for members of the military, and there are many different laws that govern the way in which a military divorce is handled.

Military life can be hard on marriages

Serving your country is one of the greatest honors that you can ever have. Military service is something to be proud of, and those of us on whose behalf you are serving are eternally grateful for the freedoms you fight to protect. Unfortunately, while military service is a great honor, it comes with many sacrifices. Most people think of military sacrifice as dying for your country, and while that may be the ultimate sacrifice, we know that there are many other areas of your life that you sacrifice in the name of your country.
