Child Custody Considerations In a Military Divorce Action
Lawrence Law knows that child custody matters can be complicated, especially when one spouse or both are subject to deployment orders. We will help you structure your Separation Agreement using all of the factors the court considers when issuing a Child Custody Order. We will also, if necessary, represent you in court hearings before the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court and Circuit Court using our knowledge of child custody. Our office has the knowledge, strategy and resources to help you.
Military Retirement Benefits
One of the most contested issues in any divorce, military or civilian, revolves around whether one spouse is entitled to a portion of the other’s retirement benefits. Many people believe if they have been married less than ten (10) years they cannot recover any portion of these benefits. We can help you assert a claim to these benefits even if you have not been married for ten (10) years.
We have effective strategies and methods for dealing with retirement benefit issues, even when you have been married for under ten (10) years. We are skilled at filing the necessary orders required and we know how to include this asset in your property settlement or divorce decree.
