Military Divorce

San Antonio Military Divorce Attorney

If you are a married member of the US armed forces, the process of getting a divorce is not markedly different from the civilian procedure, but there are more complications that generally have to be dealt with. Things such as deployment, being transferred to different states and military benefits can make the divorce process much harder for military personnel. The Law Offices of John A. Mead a San Antonio Military Divorce Attorney understands these problems and can help you.

A divorce involving a member of the armed forces, retiree or a military spouse can raise complicated property division concerns. A military pension is a significant benefit for members of the armed services, including:

  • Army
  • Marines
  • Air Force
  • National Guard
  • Navy

Nonmilitary spouses are also entitled to full benefits, including lifetime medical benefits, if the marriage lasted 20 years, the military services was 20 years or more, and there was at least a 20-year overlap between the marriage and military service. The Law Offices of John Mead can help explain guidelines used to determine the amount of military benefits civilian spouses are entitled based on the length of the marriage and time services in the military.
