Military Divorce Lawyer In Northern Virginia

Military members and their families frequently relocate and face the strains of deployments and extended separations. The demands of a military lifestyle also mean that divorce within the military context can be daunting. In such cases, the help of attorneys becomes invaluable.

Whether your case involves complex asset divisions, understanding of military pensions or addressing child custody matters, our attorney can protect your rights and interests.

Understanding Jurisdictional Challenges In Manassas

When military couples stationed in Virginia find themselves amid a divorce, jurisdictional complexities can arise. Several factors are taken into consideration, including:

  • Legal residence of the spouses
  • Location of military service
  • Timing of the divorce according to Virginia laws

The interplay between state and federal laws adds another layer of complexity, but our team knows how to navigate these situations.

From our office in Manassas, we have helped military families at Fort Belvoir, Fort Henry, Fort Allen, Dahlgren, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, Marine Corps Base Quantico, the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) and the Pentagon.

Protecting Military Benefits And Assets

Whether in the Army, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Air Force or National Guard, the division of benefits and assets is another crucial aspect of military divorce. Military pensions, health care benefits, housing allowances and other perks must be carefully evaluated and distributed per Virginia laws and regulations.

The Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (USFSPA) governs the division of military pensions, establishing specific criteria for eligibility and entitlement. Additionally, issues such as Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) coverage and Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) accounts require attention to detail to ensure equitable distribution.

Our attorney understands these complexities and can advocate for fair and favorable outcomes while safeguarding the financial well-being of both parties. We represent military members and non-military spouses in all divorce-related matters.
