For military couples, where one or both spouses are active in, or retired from, the armed forces, additional issues arise that require the help of an experienced military divorce attorney. We are the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Williams, a North Metro-Atlanta family law attorney. We have handled many divorce cases throughout the years.

Federal laws such as the Service members’ Civil Relief Act of 2003 and the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act affect many aspects of military divorce. We will take the time to explain how your, or your spouse’s, years of service can affect your divorce. Much like a traditional divorce action, military spouses must discuss and resolve child custody and visitation issues, alimony, and division of marital property. A common question we are asked deals with division of military benefits, including retirement accounts and pension plans. Together, we will analyze how these items are likely to be distributed after discussing your specific situation. Active military personnel who are currently deployed may be able to delay proceedings until they are able to have an active role in the divorce. By delaying the proceedings, active service members can postpone divorce or paternity proceedings until they are able to participate in person.
