In many ways, a military divorce is like a civilian divorce. The topics are tough to discuss, you have worries about the care of your children, and finances are always an issue. A military divorce brings additional considerations regarding child custody, child relocation and military pensions. At the Law Office of Zoe Meigs, P.C., I represent active duty and retired military personnel and their spouses.

Military Divorce and Child Custody
The UCCJEA (Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act) is an important component of the military divorce. The UCCJEA provides directives for how child custody is determined and jurisdiction of the case. If you live abroad or relocate frequently because of the military, it is wise to seek help from an attorney like me who has ample knowledge of these laws.
Military Divorce and Retirement Benefits
Another concern specific to our armed forces is the division of military retirement benefits. According to the USFSPA (Uniform Services Former Spouse's Protection Act), military retirement pay is treated as marital property. My law firm can ensure a fair determine is made regarding military benefits.
