Flint, Michigan, Military Divorce Lawyer

The Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act protects enlisted military personnel from the negative impact of a divorce while on active duty. If you are serving your country in Iraq, Afghanistan or anywhere in the world and your husband or wife has filed for divorce, your family law attorney can go to court to stop that divorce long enough to give you proper time to respond appropriately.

When there are minor children in a military divorce, the serviceman or servicewoman is most likely concerned about crafting or keeping a favorable child visitation agreement. Family law attorney Charles Riley has helped many people in the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines to keep in contact with their children.

A parenting time schedule can be arranged to allow you visitation with your children whenever you are on leave from active duty, and to then revert to a more traditional child custody arrangement after you are back in your home territory.

Other Military Divorce-Related Issues

Other issues that commonly arise in a military divorce include the following:

  • Grandparents want to see their grandchildren despite the divorce and even though the parent of the children (their own son or daughter) is overseas on active duty.
  • A wife (or husband) of a serviceman or servicewoman wants to assert her or his right to half of the military pension accrued during marriage.
  • The soldier or sailor who is away needs reassurance that child support orders are properly calculated.
