Divorce. Child Custody. Child Support. Adoption.
Divorces for military personnel involve many unique aspects of federal law, state law, and military regulations.
RETIRED PAY. Many military personnel and spouses mistakenly believe that spouses are entitled to a share of the retired pay only after 10 years of marriage and military service. This information is inaccurate and could cause military personnel or spouses to enter agreements that are not fair.
SURVIVOR BENEFIT PLAN (“SBP”). SBP may not be the best option for you. There can be tricky limitations to SBP and you need to know all your options.
CHILD SUPPORT. Child support in Georgia is based on both parents’ gross monthly incomes. There are specific, detailed rules in the Georgia Code for calculating military pay in regard to child support. You will not find the correct amount on your LES.
SEPARATION PRIOR TO DIVORCE. The amount of BAH that the military requires to be paid to a separated spouse prior to divorce may not be an appropriate amount. It could be too much or too little, depending on the circumstances. It may be possible to have that amount adjusted by the State of Georgia Superior Court.
