Fort Lauderdale Military Divorce Attorneys
Providing Highly Trained Representation for Military Divorces
At Arcaro Law Group, we know that members of the military going through divorce proceedings face some concerns that civilians do not. Active duty military members, for instance, are protected from some repercussions if they fail to respond to a divorce action. The Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act has a statute that allows proceedings to be postponed for the entirety of a service member’s active duty and up to 60 days afterward, if necessary. Another common concern is the calculation and division of military retirement after divorce. The Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (USFSPA) governs this particular matter and sets forth specific requirements for ex-spouses to receive benefits. Our experienced Fort Lauderdale divorce attorneys are here to help our military clients navigate these complexities.
Arcaro Law Group Is on Your Side with Proven Experience
Military life can be taxing on both active duty individuals and their families. Sometimes these sacrifices and difficulties can lead to the end of a marriage. No matter the reason for divorce, though, the unique status of military personnel and their families means certain aspects of a military divorce are handled differently than a civilian divorce.
Military couples filing for divorce face the following unique issues:
- Procedural protections under Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act
- Fair time-sharing and child custody arrangements for active duty military
- Alimony and child support payments
- Pension and retirement division under USFSPA
Additionally, if a spouse is on active duty or being deployed in the near future, the timeline of the divorce proceedings may be affected. Whether you are a military spouse or an active-duty member of the military, our skilled divorce attorneys at Arcaro Law Group are prepared to help you through this process. With more than 35 years of combined experience handling complex family law matters, we are ready to assist you with the honesty, knowledge, and integrity you deserve.
