Compared to a civilian divorce, a military divorce can cause several unique complications, particularly in property division, child support, alimony and relationships with children. If you or your spouse is in the military and entering into a divorce, it is important to have a lawyer who understands the potential issues and knows how to resolve them.
At the Law Office of Stephanie L. Murphy, we help clients with all aspects of a military divorce. Since many soldiers designate Florida as their home state while on active duty or move here when they retire, we have extensive knowledge and experience with this niche area of family law. Founding attorney Stephanie Murphy, who has veterans in her family, is comfortable with advocating for your situation with military personal and will work diligently and aggressively to resolve your issue.
If you are facing a military divorce, we can help. Contact us today at 941-328-8142 or toll free at 866-693-8655.
Florida Military Pension Division Attorney Who Understands Military Divorce Issues
Under the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act, a divorce may be postponed if one spouse is on active military duty. This right can be waived if they wish to go forward with the divorce. Spouses are protected as well through the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act, which mandates the proper distribution of military retirement benefits. Other requirements are also in place for military child support and alimony that exceed state laws.
At our firm, we understand the emotional and technical issues that arise when dealing with a military divorce. We have the know-how and skill to handle matters related to filing for the divorce; calculating child and spousal support; and dividing military and disability pensions according to the law.
