Family Law cases involving military personnel are subject to the same State Laws and procedures as those involved in any other divorce matter. Military divorce does have certain aspects that will need to be considered by an attorney with experience in military divorces. The reality of life in the military has a profound impact on the family. A service member may be deployed for long periods of time and often to hostile areas of the world. Military personnel are moved around frequently. There are times when the permanent duty station is changed and the family has to be relocated to the new duty station and this can often put stress on a family. This can even be harder when the duty station change occurs after a divorce and can cause a potential dispute regarding custody and visitation. Military service does not automatically mean a service member cannot be a custodial parent or be entitled to significant visitation.
These are all important aspects of a military divorce that you should discuss with your legal counsel. The Law Office Of Steven C. Benke has experience in dealing with all aspects of a military divorce. For a free and confidential consultation, please call 210-308-0004.
