Help for Complicated Military Matters

Family law problems can be complex and overwhelming. When a member of the military is a party in a family law dispute, the circumstances often become more complicated by an additional set of complex rules and regulations.

The partners who lead our firm's family law practice each have more than three decades of experience helping families in Northern Virginia successfully and efficiently resolve military divorce and other family law matters.

Springfield Military Health Care Benefits Attorneys

Military families have access to generous benefits, including quality medical and dental care. A divorce can significantly affect the availability of these benefits to nonmilitary spouses. Nonmilitary spouses generally lose their health benefits after a divorce unless they meet the 20-20-20 rule. This rule allows divorced spouses to keep medical coverage and other military benefits if:

  • They were married for at least 20 years.
  • Their spouse was in the military for at least 20 years.
  • There is 20 years of overlap between the marriage and the military service.

In addition to health care benefits, military pensions is another common area that affects divorcing couples. Our attorneys can provide you with guidance on how the military pension for you or your spouse may be affected by divorce.

Experienced Lawyers for Custody and Visitation Matters

Custody and visitation are contentious issues for many divorced or unmarried parents. For military families, parenting disputes are particularly complicated. Those serving in the armed forces face deployments and relocations that are unavoidable and that can cause significant challenges for custody and visitation. Because military families often live in a different state or location than the place they consider home, relocation may be especially frequent after a military divorce or separation.

When your relationship with your children is at stake, you can rely on our attorneys for experienced, knowledgeable guidance for child custody and visitation matters. We will explain the law that affects your case and present you with options aimed at successfully resolving your dispute in a way that protects your rights and is in the best interests of your children.
