Military Divorces Require An Experienced Attorney

A military divorce has unique factors that often make the process more complex than a divorce between civilians. For this reason, it is extremely important to work with a family law attorney in Pennsylvania who has experience handling military divorces.

I am lawyer Michael E. Eisenberg, and I understand the differences between military and civilian divorces. Backed by more than 25 years of experience, I provide comprehensive legal guidance to address all of your needs.

Dividing A Military Pension

The main differentiator between a civilian and military divorce is the military pension. A military member will receive a retirement pension after 20 years or more of active service. There are several factors that can affect if or how a military pension is divided, including:

  • The length of the marriage: If the couple was married 10 years or longer, the nonmilitary spouse is often entitled to half of the pension.
  • The overlap of military service and the marriage: If the overlap is small, or the service member spent many years in the military before getting married, it is possible that only a small portion of the pension will be considered marital property.
  • Years of military service: If the divorce takes place before the end of the service member's career, the nonmilitary spouse may be entitled to less of the pension.
  • The needs of each spouse: Dividing a pension is not always the best option. Some spouses choose to accept certain assets or alimony instead of seeking part of a military pension.

Providing An Accurate Assessment Of Your Military-Related Assets

Dividing a pension is a complicated process that involves many factors. To make sure that you get the most accurate assessment of your options, I work closely with experts in the area. While I advise you of your legal rights, a specialist will prepare any military-related orders to ensure they are done correctly.
