Hollywood Military Divorce Attorney
South Florida Military Divorce
Long distance relationships are never easy. Marriages involving a spouse who is a member of the armed services can prove to be even more difficult. Spending long periods of time away from each other can put an enormous strain on a marriage. When a spouse returns from deployment, the couple may discover that they have grown apart, or have little in common. The civilian spouse may often feel isolated by his or her military spouse’s lack of interest in him or her, or in the marriage. In situations like this, the couple may decide to end their relationship, but are unsure of how the military divorce process will affect their future, and the future of their children.

The Military Divorce Process
A military divorce presents unique issues that do not arise in a traditional divorce. Military divorces are governed by a number of federal laws. These laws, known as the Service members Civil Relief Act, Uniform Services Former Spouses Protection Act and the Survivor Benefit Plan, are in place to protect and provide services to former spouses of members of the armed services. In our more than 30 years of experience, we’ve advised numerous servicemen and servicewomen on military divorce matters such as:
- Division of military pensions
- Continuation of pension benefits after the service member dies
- Time sharing to accommodate military life
- Maintaining means of communication to keep divorced military members in contact with their children
- Continued entitlement to military benefits
