Finding Solutions for Complex Problems

Divorce is a generally complicated process that involves extensive paperwork full of legal jargon and, often, high emotions and conflict between the two parties. Military divorce is even more complex, and it’d be a dangerous idea to try to navigate the proceedings by yourself. You need an experienced attorney to represent you and your best interests if you’re a service member or a non-military spouse. At Levi Divorce & Family Law Attorneys, principal attorney Natalie Markfeld and our team can analyze your case and strategize a plan so you can emerge from your divorce satisfied and ready to start your next chapter in life.

We Handle Every Aspect of Military Divorce

Military divorce proceedings involve decisions made on the same kinds of matters in a civilian divorce, but there are unique challenges and nuances within each that can be confusing.

We help guide military clients through the following:

  • Child support – Courts will determine support amounts by looking at the military member’s combat pay, special pay, GI benefits, and more
  • Child custody – Outlining custody plans will have to be more specific because military members’ schedules change often
  • Jurisdiction – It can be difficult to determine where to file for divorce, but you should file in a state where the military spouse is a resident, or where you and your spouse agree
  • Retirement – Each case is unique when it comes to determining how to divide a military pension
  • Health insurance – The 20/20/20 rule determines whether a spouse can continue to receive TriCare coverage, or military medical insurance

There are many unique plans for servicepeople that can be difficult to divide in the case of divorce. That’s why our seasoned lawyers are here. We have experience working with military members and their spouses and sorting through the details of divorce in order to produce solutions that work for everyone.

Military Acts to Know

As if it’s not enough to have to learn about the various healthcare plans military members have, there are also two main military acts to keep in mind that can have an impact on your divorce proceedings.

Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA)

The SCRA was passed in 2003 to address a trend of military members losing valuable quality time with their children after having their child custody orders altered during deployment. The act allows service members to postpone hearings when their jobs prevent them from being able to prepare or be present for the hearing.

Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (USFSPA)

The USFSPA was enacted in 1982 to dictate how retired pay benefits would be disbursed in families. Because of the act, it’s up to each state to determine how to distribute military pensions.

Don’t stress out over the specifics of your military divorce. You can trust our team of Queens military divorce lawyers to look out for you while you focus on your next chapter of life.
