Division Of Marital Assets When One Or Both Spouses Are In The Military
A military divorce is unique in that many rules and procedures are based on federal laws that govern family law for military personnel such as the division of pensions. In addition to the detailed rules spelled out in federal statutes, internal, unpublished military procedures are important to know about. Our attorneys’ deep knowledge includes a thorough understanding of the letter of the law as well as aspects of military divorce that are not well known or publicized.
You and/or your spouse may be stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, the Naval Stations in Bremerton, Bangor or Everett, or the Coast Guard station in Seattle. Our Federal Way location should be convenient for you. We also work with clients from the Seattle metro area and beyond who have other military affiliations.
We Are Committed To Providing Top-Notch Representation In Military Divorces
The division of assets for members of the military and their spouses is often complex. The results may have a great impact on each spouse’s lifelong financial security.
To ensure that our clients stand their best chances at fair outcomes in their military divorces, we often work with top authorities in the field of military family law. Mark Sullivan, the world-renowned author of “The Military Divorce Handbook,” a two-volume work published by the American Bar Association, often collaborates with attorney Bruce Clement for our clients’ benefit.
For both military personnel and their spouses, it is important to have an attorney with experience dividing property, including the following:
- Personal property
- Bank accounts and other financial assets
- Pensions and other retirement funds and benefits
Our attorneys work hard to protect our clients’ rights in all financial aspects, including child support, spousal support and military spouses’ fair share of all marital property.
