Military divorce representation is important to our law firm. Due to our proximity to so many military bases including the US Naval Academy, Ft. Meade, Andrews Air Force Base, and other bases in the DC metropolitan area, we have represented military members with pride for years.
While many issues are the same as for civilians, there are some special interests for military divorce that we address. For example, military retirement benefits as well as dependent benefits are a consideration.
Of particular concern to us as family law attorneys in Maryland is the effect of deployment or a change in duty station on child custody and visitation. We need to work closely and carefully to attempt to ensure that the rights of both the parents and the children are protected. Due to the distance and length of the deployment, careful provisions have to be made which involve not only time with children but also transportation and frequency.
