Military Retirement Pay
Hiring the best divorce lawyer is critical if military benefits and retirement are involved—even if the divorce is uncontested. We have extensive experience litigating the division of military retirement pay for both sides.
- If you are in the military, you must consider protecting your military retirement pay.
- On the other hand, if you are a military spouse, you may be entitled to a portion of the service member's military retirement, BAQ, and BAH—as well as continuing military health care benefits. If the spouse hires us, we virtually always get a 50% division of military retirement pay.
Military child custody law is unique. We are familiar with military requirements and regulations on BAH, spousal support, child support, housing requirements, custody, etc. Custody issues often arise when a divorced military parent has a Permanent Change of Station (PCS) and moves out of the area or even overseas. We handle all types of military custody disputes and military child support issues including military relocation.
Alimony, or spousal support, is different for military spouses for several reasons. Generally, a military spouse is required by AR 608-99 to provide Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) as support to their dependents, but not always. There are exceptions in which a service member will not be required to give up BAH if the lawyer plays the facts right. We have also been successful in obtaining support in excess of BAH by using our experience.
Representation During Deployment
We have experience and success representing deployed service members with divorce and custody issues. If you are deployed or are going through a Permanent Change of Station (PCS) and the proper venue for your case is Tennessee of Kentucky, we can help you. Many service members have questions about how the Service Members Civil Relief Act (SCRA) can protect them. We can answer those questions for you. Call us today.
