Military Divorce Attorneys Serving Fairfax & Manassas Virginia

What are some special considerations when you are in the military and getting divorced?

For current and former military members and military spouses, it is critical that your attorney be aware of the interplay between retirement pay and service-related disability pay. In the Supreme Court in Howell v. Howell, the Court ruled in the veteran’s favor that a state court may not order a veteran to indemnify a divorced spouse for the loss in retirement pay caused by his waiver to obtain service-related disability pay. However, the Court can enforce an agreement that the veteran may not reduce the spouse’s portion of retirement pay by electing disability pay. It is absolutely crucial that this issue be addressed in any military retirement Order.

A lawyer, attorney at law, or attorney, is a professional who is licensed to practice law in a given area or jurisdiction. To “practice law” generally means to represent a client before a court of law, or to give legal advice. Some attorneys may practice in a wide range of areas of the law; others may only specialize in a few or only one area. Attorneys can work in groups (such as in a law firm), with a partner, or by themselves in a solo practice.
