Military families provide a great service to our country, but they may face complex legal situations when family law matters overlap with their career. As serving in the armed forces will have an impact on many areas of your life, you may benefit from the counsel of a Kentucky lawyer with experience in military family law issues. We can explain your options and rights when divorce and military service collide.
If your marriage is over and you or your spouse is an active duty member of the military, there are various issues that will be different from a civilian divorce. Child custody, division of marital property and even spousal support will be impacted by laws that are unique to those who serve in any branch of the armed forces. Before you initiate the divorce process, get the information you need to move forward with confidence.
If you are a parent, you will have concerns over child custody and how you may seek an arrangement that protects your parental rights while protecting the best interests of your children. A custody arrangement should consider factors such as temporary deployment and relocation. Visitation arrangements should be fair, allowing the children to maintain a strong relationship with both parents.
Military family law matters are complex, and it takes knowledgeable guidance to effectively navigate a divorce involving one or two members of the armed forces. Get a better understanding of your options by seeking a case evaluation with a member of our experienced Kentucky legal team. You have rights, and we can help protect these entitlements.
