Hampton Roads has one of the largest military populations in the world, and we are so honored to be able to serve our servicemembers when they have legal needs. Many of our family law cases involve military families, and while some aspects of these cases are similar to the needs of a civilian, there are unique dimensions to military family law that require a broad understanding of Virginia law and those laws specific to servicemembers and their families.
Frequent deployments and changing duty stations can create unique issues when it comes to court appearances as well as custody and visitation settlements. Additionally, military members have unique financial considerations, such as retirement benefits and tax implications that differ from civilians, which must be accounted for when going through a military divorce.
The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, Blended Retirement System, and Family Care Plans are just a few important factors that will impact the divorce process, and it’s imperative that clients have an attorney that is familiar with the laws, services, and plans, and has deep experience helping to see our servicemembers through this very difficult process.
We have published a free Virginia Military Family Law book that offers important information for our servicemembers who are going through a divorce, and we would be happy to offer you a copy.
