Dividing Military Benefits
Divorce typically involves dividing marital assets. In a military divorce, those assets frequently include the service member spouse’s military benefits, such as the right to military retirement pay, healthcare for the children, and even the value of the member spouse’s leave days accrued during the marriage. With the parties' consent, it may also include education benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
The rules and statutes governing these various benefits involve complex questions of state and federal law. You should make sure that your lawyer has experience in military divorces, like the Law Offices of Scott P. Davis, P.A.
