Military Families Are Subject To Unique Rules

In addition to the logistical and financial pressures, there are numerous military regulations regarding child support obligations that do not concern civilians. With so many processes and procedures to consider, you want an experienced lawyer to help you weigh your options.

The potential loss of benefits is another complicating factor. Steven C. Girsky will help you understand what types of military retirement and medical benefits each party is entitled to after the divorce. The civilian party still may be able to obtain a portion of a military pension as well as certain survivors benefits. If you know what to look for, you can determine which regulations best serve your family.
