Experienced with Military Divorces

While similar to standard divorces, divorces involving veterans or active duty members involve particular nuances that not every attorney has the experience to address. At Nelson Jones, PLLC, we have worked with numerous military service members throughout Utah in handling the complexities of their divorce.

Helping You Understand All the Federal Regulations

Military divorces often include the various aspects of a typical divorce, such as child support and custody. However, they also include a number of other factors. For instance, military pension and retirement are often included in asset division, and the nonmilitary spouse may be entitled to some of these assets. These assets must be handled very carefully depending on your interest in the action. Failing to address certain benefits can cause a service member or a former spouse to deal with unwanted consequences.

In addition, while you may go through the same child support and alimony processes as with a normal divorce, the military has a process for securing an allotment that directly and easily covers some or all of the child support or alimony payments.

Military divorce is a highly specialized area that warrants skilled representation and individualized solutions to meet your needs. Our attorneys help you understand the various factors in play, so you can be involved in shaping the results of your divorce.
