The divorce process can strike a number of different emotions for people. Military families often face emotional and financial challenges that are very complicated to deal with. The divorce process can be even more complex if the military member is deployed overseas. As you go through the divorce process, you should seek advice and guidance from an experienced attorney.

Military Retirement and Pension Benefits Attorneys
Courts consider a number of different factors when dividing benefits, such as private retirement accounts and pensions, in military divorce. At the Burch Shepard Family Law Group, we have a clear understanding of the law and know what factors will be considered during the property and asset division process. For instance, we know that courts will look at the length of the marriage, date of the dissolution and the length of time served in the military when dividing benefits.
Considering Your Best Interests
Because these benefits are typically the largest assets divided in divorce, all aspects of the situation must be evaluated by an experienced military divorce lawyer. At our firm, not only do we have significant experience representing clients in military divorce, but we also have represented clients in complex and high net worth divorce proceedings. We address all issues upfront so they can be resolved promptly and do not raise complications post-judgment.
