Military Divorce

If you want to see what a normal divorce is like, there are plenty of resources out there, such as: The Divorce Process Blog Post, Divorce Process Flowchart, What Documents You Need Before You File for Divorce + the Divorce Practice Areas Page. However, if you or your spouse are in the military, you have certain issues that take precedent over a normal divorce process.

 

Not only that - it matters whether or not you are the military spouse or if you are separated from the person in the military. 

If you're the spouse who is in the military, your biggest issues are going to be custody while you're gone and child support. You also need to protect yourself as military members pay more in child support than normal lay persons. That is due to your BAS and other additional payments/benefits counting towards child support. You need an attorney who understands the deductions that can be made so you aren't paying an arm and a leg.

 

If you are the spouse of someone in the military, there are also certain benefits like continued health insurance and retirement that you are entitled to. However, these benefits aren't freely given and you'll need someone to fight for your rights. 

You need an attorney that knows what they're doing. Taylor and Martin have worked extensively with military members having worked the first seven (7) years of their practice in the same city as an air force base (Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene, TX). Call (512) 291-6952 today!
