Every divorce is different, and each comes with its own set of unique challenges to overcome. Military divorces are no different, but the issues you have to deal with may differ depending on whether you are currently in the military or are the spouse of a military member and are considering a divorce. Because of the specific issues these couples face when separating, it's important to get information on what to expect and how to protect your interests from those familiar with the ins and outs of military divorces.
If you are an active member of the military, you may have questions about how a deployment may affect custody or time-sharing. Even just being relocated across the country can seriously impact these matters and result in a legal dispute over custody modification orders. In these situations, we can help you understand your rights and how to best approach your case given your specific circumstances.
If you are currently married to a military member and are considering a divorce, we can help you understand how military benefits — such as pensions and health care coverage — will be handled during the divorce settlement. As questions come up or issues arise, we can walk you through your options and the pros and cons of each so you are better equipped to make decisions moving forward.
At Pacheco Perez, we know that divorce is a time of uncertainty and overwhelming and conflicting emotions. We use our resources and experience to help you navigate this difficult time and come out on the other side ready to start the next chapter of your life.
