When service members marry, their spouses commit not only to their partner but also to the armed forces. As a result, military marriage differs from a civilian marriage due to certain requirements demanded by the armed forces. For example, when a service member is deployed, more than one family member is affected by this move. Since military families make sacrifices not expected of civilians, they receive benefits that aren’t available to civilians. Protecting these benefits is an important goal in a military divorce.
At Trotto Law Firm, P.C., we represent service members and their spouses throughout New York. Since 2009, we have designed effective legal strategies that take into account military divorce considerations other lawyers tend to omit. We understand that parents who are deployed need a flexible custody arrangement that addresses this absence. In addition to custody considerations, we are familiar with the specific guidelines that determine which benefits can be transferred to a soldier’s offspring and former spouse.
