Helping Military Families With Their Family Law Concerns

Military members make great sacrifices in the service of their country. They are asked to move frequently, and may be sent halfway around the world at a moment's notice. These constant demands may drastically increase the stress upon a family, and in some cases, may lead one of the spouses to consider ending the marriage.

At Groves Law Offices, LLP, we have a great appreciation for military families, and want to make sure that you are able to get the help you need. We have worked with many clients from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, as well as those who are stationed abroad whose families live in Washington. One of our attorneys, Travis S. Groves, proudly served our country in the U.S. Navy. This practical, hands-on military experience helps us greatly when handling issues for our military clients.

Paying Close Attention To The Important Details

There are many complex issues that we examine to best learn more about how we can help you protect your specific interests. We want to make sure that we minimize the impact that this entire situation has upon your career and family. Some of the challenging issues that can arise during a military family law case include:

  • Helping couples divide the military pension and other retirement benefits held by the serving spouse
  • Determining insurance matters for the spouse and children after the marriage has ended
  • Finding agreement on child custody or child support issues
  • Revisiting existing custody agreements for relocation purposes
  • Modifying previous child or spousal support awards

You may think that you can resolve your divorce or custody case without hiring an experienced lawyer to help. We want to stress that it is extremely important to consult a lawyer prior to making any decisions in your case.

In military divorces, the division of marital property is extremely difficult. You do not want to make a mistake that prevents you from receiving all of the property that you are entitled to during your divorce. Many people come to us after the fact, and unfortunately, there is very little we can do to help once a divorce has been finalized. Come to us as soon as divorce seems like it might be possible, so that we can help you get things right the first time.
