Military Divorce Lawyer Serving Fort Worth & Tarrant County
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. But 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 in all types of family law matters.
Child Custody Matters In Military Families
Oftentimes, there are questions about which court has jurisdiction in divorce and child custody matters involving military families because military members may relocate frequently or live aboard. These questions can often be answered by the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). It is important to seek legal representation from a family law attorney who is well-versed in these laws.
Military Divorce And Retirement Benefits
Another concern specific to our armed forces and their families is the division of military retirement benefits. According to the USFSPA (Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act), military retirement pay is treated as marital property. My law firm can ensure a fair determination is made regarding military benefits.
