Helping Military Service Members Navigate Complex Divorce Proceedings
While divorce laws do not differ for members of the military, there are more complications that generally have to be dealt with. Things such as deployment, being transferred to different states and military benefits can make the divorce process much harder for military personnel. As a former member of the military, attorney Rebecca L. Owen of the law office of Rebecca L. Owen, PLLC, understands these problems and can help you.
Attorney Rebecca L. Owen has worked with members of the armed forces in Phoenix and surrounding areas in Arizona since 1997, and can provide unique service you might not get from another law firm. Contact our law office at 602-635-2765 or toll-free at 877-463-0922. You may also email our law firm to schedule your consultation.
Helping Military And Nonmilitary Families
When a member of the United States Armed Forces contacts the law office of Rebecca L. Owen, PLLC, we will explain all of the steps involved in a divorce proceeding. Because there are often special needs and demands required for service members, we will tell you how we can be of assistance even when it seems there is nothing that can be done. As with nonmilitary divorces, we will discuss issues such as:
- Child custody — Including in-state and interstate child custody arrangements
- Child support — Whether you are establishing paternity to secure or enforce a support order or need to modify an existing order because of a change in circumstances
- Alimony/spousal maintenance — Both temporary and permanent orders as well as post-judgment modification of an order
- Property division/debt division
- Long-distance divorce — Both for military and nonmilitary individuals
Out-Of-State Military Divorce
Our lawyer has a background in working with military personnel who are stationed or deployed overseas. Just because a client is out of the country does not necessarily mean the divorce process is stopped. While courts will often defer the case until the service member returns so he or she can appear in person, often the client will have the option of appearing via telephone. At our firm, we help our clients with these issues and keep in constant communication so you are not left in the dark.
If you are retired and receiving military retirement benefits, Ms. Owen can assist you in locating a specialist to represent you in your long-distance divorce, which can be much more technical and complicated in nature.
