Colorado Springs Military Divorce Attorney
If you or your spouse is a member of the United States military, your divorce, especially the division of assets, will be governed by certain military laws. At The Samuelson Law Firm, my team and I work closely with you so your rights are always protected, no matter how complicated your divorce gets. As a Colorado Springs divorce lawyer who has been serving in trials since 1997, I am also able to help you resolve your issue in court if the other party is unwilling to cooperate. My vast knowledge of military divorce law and unparalleled commitment to my clients' best interests has been invaluable to many families who have come to me for help.
Military divorce is different from civilian divorce in many ways, including:
- The place where you file for divorce
- How to divide your pensions and military benefits
- How child and spousal support is calculated
- How child custody is arranged, especially during deployment
Legal Separation from Military Spouse
When you are married to someone in the military, you are entitled to certain benefits. In a military divorce, you must take into account the benefits you received while married and military law decides for you which benefits you get to keep and which ones you lose, depending on the status of your relationship. In the case of a legal separation, you can sometimes retain the benefits, though you are not subjected to a division of assets, child custody determination, and other common elements of a complete divorce.
