I understand the issues that commonly arise in military divorce and work toward effective methods for reaching the best possible resolutions for my clients.A Veteran, An Attorney With More Than 45 Years Of Experience - Protecting Your Rights
As a former officer with the Judge Advocate General's (JAG) Corps, I have an in-depth understanding of military law as well as the concerns of military service members, veterans and their families.
In many ways, a military divorce is the same as a civilian divorce. Decisions will need to be made regarding property division, child custody and support, spousal support and other factors. Talk to me about:
- Military retirement and benefits: As a skilled Colorado Springs military divorce attorney, I have substantial knowledge of the laws applying to military retirement and health benefits. Spouses can be entitled to a portion of the retirement account, depending on the length of the marriage.
- Relocation: I can handle issues affecting your children that arise from temporary tours of duty, deployment and out-of-state relocations.
- Child custody and support: I can handle complex child custody and support cases, advocating for your parental rights as well as the best interests of your child or children. When children are involved in a military divorce, it can complicate matters, but it is not impossible to resolve these issues favorably.
- Spousal support: Spousal support (alimony) is granted on a case-by-case basis. As a skilled military divorce lawyer, I understand the considerations that are used to make the decision regarding amount, type and duration of support.
- Post-dissolution modification: As a Cimarron Hills custody and support modifications lawyer, I represent clients who are seeking modification or contesting proposed modification. A change in material condition - a salary increase or relocation, for example - may merit a modification.
I am dedicated to representing military families and protecting their rights. Whether you are in Colorado, out of state or out of the country, you can turn to my Colorado Springs law firm with confidence.
