Military families face the same stresses as other families, plus the added stresses of being separated for long periods, deployed without warning, and moved from one location to the next. When these stresses add up, many military couples, active duty or retired, decide to divorce.
Military divorce occurs in the same court system as civilian divorces but is complicated by the military’s unique pay, benefit, and retirement systems. For this reason, not many family law firms are able to manage the intricate processes of property division that are part of a military divorce. One notable exception is the Fort Worth law firm of Lovelace Law, P.C.
Our lawyers understand how your military status affects child custody and visitation, how to assess disposable retired pay, what level of child support you can expect to pay (or receive), and whether your military retirement package can be divided in two.
We represent both sides in military divorce, including couples who are both members of the military, drawing on our familiarity with The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, The Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (USFSPA), and other relevant laws.
Many issues in a military divorce are about jurisdiction. Our attorneys can tell you where to file if you are deployed overseas or stationed outside Texas. We work with active duty service members at Ford Hood and the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base, and with military retirees across Texas.
