Military Divorce Representation from Attorneys With Actual Military Experience

Military divorces for lawyers who were never in the military can be disastrous for the clients. Without actual experience in the military — including knowledge of the special legal issues involved in the military as well as the staggering amount of acronyms involved in military-speak — a civilian attorney simply cannot give you the representation you need in your divorce case. We can.

Southern Minnesota Military Divorce Attorney

The Kohlmeyer Hagen Law Office has the attorneys you need to help with a military divorce. Our two partner Mankato military divorce attorneys both have military experience, and have handled numerous military divorce cases as attorneys, as well. We have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of some of the more common military divorce issues listed below.

  • Military PensionsDivision of assets in a marriage dissolution is complicated by military pensions. There are so many provisions and special rules involving military pensions and divorce that most lawyers get it wrong. We can look at your pension plan to help you know whether or not the spouse is entitled to pension benefits, and if so, how much.
  • Leave and Earnings Statement (LES): What the military calls a pay stub. We have experience interpreting the LES to determine what benefits the other spouse is entitled to.
  • Service Members Civil Relief Act of 2003 (SCRA): This federal legislation, formerly called the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act (SSCRA), offers certain protections to military personnel in civil cases like family law matters.

We understand all of the complications and little wrinkles brought into play in a divorce that involves military service members. The different laws applying to the military will affect every aspect of the divorce, from child custody, parenting time, child support and grandparents’ rights. We can help.
