Military Divorce

Every divorce case has some unique aspects. A person's occupation can have a significant impact on the way a divorce is handled for many reasons. This is particularly evident for members of the U.S. military, who may face unique child custody and visitation issues because of where they are stationed, as well as unique issues pertaining to military retirement benefits.
Our family law lead attorney is a former member of the Army National Guard who has personally served overseas in a combat zone.  Because of his personal experience we are particularly well equipped to handle military divorce. At Childers & Motsinger, P.C., we provide representation that is skilled and tailored to fit your needs, whether you are a service member or the spouse of a service member.
Child Custody and Visitation for Military Personnel
It can be challenging enough for members of the military to maintain a strong relationship with their children while travelling out of state or out of the country in the name of serving their country. It can become even more challenging during and after a divorce, when parental relocation may be an issue. There are ways that an experienced attorney can protect relationships. We can educate you about your options.
Division of Military Retirement Benefits
Retirement division is an aspect of property division that catches many people — including members of the military — by surprise. Retirement benefits are subject to division. We will explain how this happens while taking the necessary steps to protect what you are entitled to.
