Military Divorce

Experienced Lawyers Representing Either Military Personnel or Spouses During Divorce

Divorce for military families involves certain facets not included in a typical Louisiana divorce, such as the distribution of military pensions, child relocation and deployment related issues. Property division, child support and alimony payments are potentially different if one or both spouses are current or former military personnel. To ensure your military divorce is handled with the utmost care it is important to secure the assistance of an attorney experienced with the rules and regulations surrounding military divorce.

At the New Orleans law office of Brown Weimer LLC, we represent military personnel who are under Louisiana jurisdiction but may be stationed worldwide. We also work with military spouses choosing to pursue divorce. With more than 25 years of experience behind them, the attorneys at our firm understand the nuances of military divorce and what it will take to meet your outcome goals.

Contact us to arrange an initial consultation to discuss how we may be of assistance in your military divorce case.

Effectively and Efficiently Handling Military Divorce Cases

Military divorces can easily become complex when they involve the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), the Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act (USFSPA), the Servicemembers' Civil Relief Act (SCRA) or other statutes pertaining to members of the armed forces and their spouses. Family law attorneys unfamiliar with these statutes can easily find themselves in over their head. Simple errors resulting from unfamiliarity with military divorce laws can end up costing a client dearly.

Our firm has the experience needed to properly, effectively and efficiently handle all military divorce-related matters, including:

  • Equitable distribution of military retirement benefits
  • Interpretation of military pay allowances for the purposes of the child support guidelines
  • Domicile and residency for active duty military personnel for the purposes of jurisdiction
  • Benefits afforded to military personnel under the servicemember's civil relief act, including continuances and special accommodations.
