Family Law For Military Families

For military personnel, the laws are the same in a divorce or family law matter, but the impact to you, your family and your career is not.

In family law, many aspects of military life must be considered:

  • Military divorce
  • Military retirement and benefits
  • Use of the military exchange
  • Division of future military retirement pay
  • Survivor Benefit Plans (SBP)
  • Medical and hospital benefits
  • Military identification cards
  • Dependent privileges

While family law and divorce issues are deeply personal to you, the government doesn't have those same concerns. Divorce done incorrectly can mean revocation of military privileges down the road.

Mediation is an alternative to avoiding court and can help you avoid impact to your security clearance and keep your military record clean. As a former military judge and JAG, I know how to effectively use mediation to protect your career.
