Military Divorce

A military divorce is a divorce in which either the husband or wife is serving in the military. If you are a military member wanting a divorce or annulment, you can rely on a military divorce attorney who comprehensively understands these situations. If you are faced with the decision to file for divorce while involved in military service or if your spouse is in military service, feel free to contact my office. When you attempt to file for divorce on your own, you could face negative consequences from a dispute over the divorce agreement. At Charles E. Willmott, P.A., I can help you in the following ways:

Child Custody
Military couples face unique challenges when determining child custody arrangements. The courts will make a determination based on the child's best interest. Both parents are equally considered, and the mother is not automatically chosen.

Child Support
The non-custodial parent of the child is typically chosen to provide monetary assistance to the custodial parent. The main criterion is making sure that the child is protected, despite the situation of his or her parents.

Paternity & the Military
There can be issues concerning the paternity of a child which can cause difficult situations for military members. There are several options and ways to deal with the issue of paternity and it is important to involve a lawyer.

Domestic Violence
Even in cases of domestic violence, military members are subject to federal military codes. This means that domestic violence cases can lead to very severe consequences for military members.

Divorce Mediation
Divorce mediation is offered for military couples if they desire to seek the route of an easier, less-expensive, and less time-consuming endeavor. If children are involved, this is often a very helpful option to maintaining unity of the family.

Visitation
Visitation is a challenge for individuals involved in a military divorce. It is important to look toward the best interests of your child before making a visitation agreement concerning your children.

Division of Property
When it comes to the division of property and military retirement benefits, a lawyer should be involved to ensure that this situation is worked out in an equitable manner for both parties.

The Ten-Year Rule
The Ten-Year Rule involves the division of military pension as marital property. There must have been at least ten years of marriage that coincided with at least ten years of military service, in order to get a direct payment from DFAS. This protects the military party.

20 / 20 / 20 Rule
The 20 / 20 / 20 rule refers to full benefits of a former spouse of a service member. This individual is classified as a dependent, which entitles him or her to full military benefits. This status is subject to specific requirements, however.

Filing for Military Divorce

When it comes to being a service member, you are looked up to with honor and respect by most individuals. To uphold this banner, it is expected that military members file for divorce in a respectful way, without disregard to their spouse. If you need to begin the process of divorce, I can help you through this situation. I am a respectable military divorce lawyer who is prepared to walk you through this process.
