All divorces can be complicated by a range of issues. Divorces that involve a member of the military are no different. In fact, military divorces are usually more complicated than civilian divorces due to the numerous spousal and family benefits that the military offers.
If you are seeking help with a military divorce, let me, attorney William Sams, help. From my office in Vista, I pride myself on providing military servicemen and servicewomen — and the spouses of military men and women — with insightful, experienced family law and military law representation. I fully understand the civilian and military legal systems, having had a full military career and the honor of sitting as a military judge. With over 40 years of experience, I know what it takes to get your case resolved.
Protect Your Rights
Whether you or your spouse is the member of the military, it is important that you protect your rights to essential benefits. Do not be afraid to explore the possibility of divorce just because you are concerned about losing your benefits. I can help you understand how we can structure a divorce so you can retain as many benefits as possible.
Aspects Of Military Divorce
Together, we can discuss all aspects of your military divorce and how they may affect your life. Some of the issues include:
- Alimony (spousal support)
- Property division
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Division of military benefits
- Military health care
- Military pension
- Other military retirement benefits
Alternative To Divorce
In some instances, a couple may be able to utilize a legal separation instead of a divorce in order to maintain military benefits and coverage. However, this is not the right avenue of resolution for all couples. I can meet with you to learn more about your specific situation, concerns and goals, and then make a determination on how best to tailor our approach to suit your needs.
