Special Issues in Military Divorce

Several common issues come up in most of the military divorces that the Law Office of Sherby Dianne Scurto, P.C. handles:

  • Deployment: Deployment usually forces the parties to live in different jurisdictions, which causes custody and visitation problems. Sherby works hard to make sure the kids still have a chance to maintain a relationship with both parents after a divorce, regardless of deployment-related issues.
  • Benefits packages: Often a military retirement pension is the main asset for military families. When it comes to division of assets and debt, Ms. Scurto can help you reach a quick, equitable settlement regarding the military benefits package.
  • Varying laws by military branch: Depending on whether we are dealing with the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard or Marines, the laws regarding child custody, child support, division of assets and spousal support will be different. You need an attorney with military experience to help you work through these complicated laws.

Plenty can go wrong in a military divorce. Knowledge of military procedures as well as the law is something you should consider when choosing counsel for a military divorce.
