How Does The End Of A Marriage Impact Military Families?

If you or your spouse serves in the military, a divorce could pose unique challenges as you seek to craft a final divorce order that will work well for your family. From frequent moves to the potential of deployment, there are many factors that can make military divorce complex. The Virginia family law attorneys at Miller, Earle & Shanks, PLLC, can help you navigate this entire process.

We understand the concerns you may have regarding how your military service or your spouse's career could impact your future, and we have the experience necessary to help you fight for terms that are fair and sustainable.

Smart Answers To Unique Challenges

Family life is not always easy for military families. One or both spouses may have to spend significant time away from home due to deployments and temporary duty assignments. During divorce, these same issues can impact how child custody, visitation and financial support will work as well. We can help you seek smart solutions to complex challenges in the following ways:

  • A child custody order that allows the children to maintain strong relationships with both parents
  • A visitation schedule that accounts for potential future deployments
  • A child support order that represents the current and long-term needs of the kids
  • A petition to change an existing child custody order or a request for relocation with your child

Whether you need to change an existing child custody order due to a military relocation, you wish to pursue a reasonable divorce order or you have concerns about the division of military pension accounts, our lawyers can serve as the experienced allies you need during this process.
