We Understand Complex Military Divorces
Military personnel and spouses of military personnel who are seeking a divorce or dissolution have unique and complex circumstances and need the assistance of an experienced attorney. In military divorces it is critical to understand the various compensation levels and benefits of the parties.
The Delaware divorce lawyers of the Lawrence Law Office offer our clients more than 20 years of legal experience including military family law issues. They are dedicated to efficiently guiding their clients through the divorce process quickly while protecting their assets. We are familiar with the military benefits structure and know what benefits can be divided and what benefits cannot.
If you have been married for 10 years or longer, you may be eligible for additional benefits, contact Lawrence Law Office today to learn about your rights.
The division of military retirement benefits is complicated and should not be done without the assistance of an attorney. Important aspects that need to be understood include:
- Cost of living adjustments (COLA)
- Court Order Acceptable for Processing (COAP)
- Survivor benefits
- Promotion structures
- Value of marital assets
On Active Duty?
You do not have to be present in Ohio to obtain a divorce. In a dissolution or divorce, both parties are required to appear. However, if you are on active duty you can file for an uncontested divorce. In an uncontested divorce, the parties have to agree on the issues of property division, debt distribution, child custody, spousal support or child support, but both parties do not have to appear before the court for the divorce to be final.
