Dividing Military Benefits

Divorce typically involves dividing marital assets. In a military divorce, those assets frequently include the service member spouse’s military benefits, such as the right to military retirement pay, healthcare for the children, and even the value of the member spouse’s leave days accrued during the marriage. It also may include education benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

The rules and statutes governing these various benefits involve complex questions of state and federal law. You should make sure that your lawyer has experience in military divorces.

We know our job and we are never confused by false priorities. We have only one mission to perform and that is to fight for our client. And we must do it better than our adversary.
— Attorney Richard J. Mockler
