Navigating a Military Divorce in Rhode Island

When you are seeking a divorce within a military context, you must satisfy certain requirements. For example, there are specific state laws in Rhode Island that dictate how family law cases are handled. Additionally, there is federal legislation that dictates many of these military issues. One example is the Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act (USFSPA). This act controls the computation and division of a service member's military pension benefits.

Dividing Military Benefits

At Moyer Law, PC, our Rhode Island military divorce lawyers know that division of military benefits does not always occur. With our experience, you can learn about the guidelines that govern the division of pensions or benefits. Our lawyers are also completely familiar with these types of issues.

Child Custody Issues during Military Divorce

In addition to military divorce issues, Attorney Moyer confidently assists clients who are dealing with child custody issues. For example, relocation is a major issue for military families, as their job often requires them to relocate. Custody agreements need to be updated to factor in the relocation or deployment of a custodial parent.

Other Unique Issues

There are many other issues that military persons or their families must deal with differently than anyone else during divorce. Health insurance, housing allowances, disability, and residency requirements are just a few of them. Ensuring your divorce or child custody lawyer is familiar with all of these issues is critical to your success.
