If you are in the Armed Forces, your experience in the Family Law Court will be very similar to a civilian.
However, there are nuances in a military divorce that are important for you and your attorney to understand.
How Is Divorce Different For Service Members?
Common concerns of our military clients include visitation, relocation by the mother, and accurate calculation of child support.
Minimizing your exposure due to deployments and tax-free income is paramount to achieving a fair result in your case. At Goldberg Jones, we focus our practice on representing men in the often uphill battles regarding custody and support every day. These hills are often even steeper for men in the military.
Common concerns of military clients include:
- dealing with a case when you are deployed
- mothers who move with the children (parental relocation)
- getting proper visitation when you are home
- trouble paying support after a pay decrease due to a loss of BAH or active duty pay
- much more.
You need someone who understands your situation and can properly present your case to the court. We will work hard to increase your time with your child, reduce your support payments, and protect your retirement and other assets.
