Military Divorce Guidance & Representation
You do not need to have been married in Florida to get divorced in the state. If you have lived or been stationed in Florida, it could be possible for you to file for divorce in Florida. One of the benefits of divorcing in Florida is that you can obtain a no fault divorce. This means that neither party needs to have done anything in particular to warrant the divorce.
Reasons to Hire Our Military Divorce Attorneys
There are several reasons a military member or their spouse should hire a military divorce attorney. A number of issues can arise in relation to a military divorce. For example, the divorce can be delayed as long as one spouse is engaged in active duty. This allowance is a practical one. It recognizes that it would be hard for the deployed person to make appearances. There is also the issue of retirement pay. In Florida any military retirement pay may be divided between the spouses in a divorce. There are several factors, however, that must be taken into account. That is why it is essential to hire an attorney with in-depth knowledge of military divorces.
Along with military retirement, there are other monetary assets to consider. For example, many military members may have a Thrift Savings Plan or TSP. This government-sponsored investment plan can be divided between the spouses in a divorce. It is also important that a TSP is taken into consideration when calculating support payments. These could include alimony or child support. Besides military retirement payments, the Survivor Benefit Program makes payments after the person’s death. The military member might want to change the beneficiary of these payments during divorce.
Dividing Assets in a Military Divorce
It is essential for military members or their spouses to hire an attorney with the requisite knowledge and experience for a military divorce. The lawyer must be able to divide the military retirement appropriately. You will avoid having to hire more legal counsel. It is also important for the attorney to be able to advise you on alimony, child support, and other payments. Working out the correct amount involves considering both basic pay and on-duty pay.
