Southlake Military Divorce lawyer

How is Military Divorce Different?

If you or your spouse is a service member, it is critical that you have a Southlake military divorce lawyer who is experienced and understands how certain laws affect military divorces. Active-duty servicemembers and their spouses have additional options not afforded to civilians regarding residency requirements and being able to file for divorce in Texas. Service requirements and the time required for a response under the Service Member’s Civil Relief Act also differ for active-duty service members.

One key difference with military divorces in the way military retirement gets divided and health insurance benefits are distributed. Our divorce attorneys will work with you to ensure that you understand the intricacies of military retirement including whether a non-service member spouse can seek a portion of a service member’s retirement benefits under the Uniform Services Former Spouse’s Protection Act, if a spouse is eligible for continued benefits provided by TRICARE, how your Thrift Savings Plan differs from retirement pay, or whether a Survivor Benefit Plan election can be made.

Child custody and support matters also differ for military families. Factors that do not arise for civilian families, such as deployment, mobilization, and transfers, should not be left out of your parenting plan. Child support calculations can also differ for service members because military paychecks are unlike civilian paychecks. It is important that the appropriate allowances are considered for determining child support. Our family attorneys will ensure that these unique circumstances of military divorces are not overlooked for your family.
