Advocating For You In Military Divorce Cases

Due to an itinerant lifestyle, military families seldom set down roots in a community. They make many personal sacrifices along the way, too. Besides moving from base to base and continent to continent, there also are overseas deployments. The stress on a marriage may linger for months and years, causing husbands and wives to drift apart and divorce.

Who can provide you with solid advice? The Law Offices of Jeanne W. Murray, P.C., in San Diego, has the experience, empathy and knowledge to do that. Our firm was founded by Ms. Murray, who has represented clients for decades — first as a U.S. Navy judge advocate and now as an attorney in civilian life. Because she’s a veteran, she understands the challenges in military culture.

Reviewing The Many Facets Of Military Divorce Cases

The rigid rules of military life are taxing on many families and spouses. If you’re in a troubled marriage, Ms. Murray can help you navigate the legal aspect of divorce and provide advice in the aspects so unique to military service members.

Ms. Murray can help you in areas that include:

  • Child custody in creating a mutually satisfactory parenting plan
  • Child support
  • Division of property and assets
  • Military pensions (former spouses of military service members are eligible for full medical benefits)
  • Tax matters

There are special rules in military divorce. For example, service members can seek a temporary halt of a civil action such as a divorce or child custody hearing while on active duty or within 90 days from being released from active duty. Also, specific rules apply to alimony and child support. These are in place to make sure that a military service member continues to make family support requirements after a divorce.
