It is crucial that Military service members seek specialized legal advice when it comes to divorce or any family law matter. Military divorces differ from civil divorces in a variety of ways. The legal team at the Law Offices of Brad M. Micklin has experience in military legal representation and understands the importance of getting a military divorce right the first time around.
Navigating the legalities of a military pension division and the distribution of payments under the Survivor Benefit Plan is a complex and often irrational process. In order to properly divide assets and debts and determine the future care and custody of dependents, your lawyer will have to understand how to negotiate the specific guidelines set forth for military personnel.
During a recent interview, Mr. Micklin commented, “Many military service members and their families rely heavily on their military retired pay and medical benefits. I take pride in simplifying a very complicated situation for our service members and their families.”
The Uniformed Services Former Spouse Protection Act or (USFSPA) allows military pensions to be considered divisible property, rather than income, as in a civil divorce. It is also important to note that in order to receive full medical benefits, you must be married at least 20 years, the other party must have served at least 20 years in the military, and there must be an overlap of at least 20 years between these two. This is just a small sample of the many facts your lawyer must understand when filing for a military divorce.
