Here at the law office of V. Freitas Law, we firmly believe that our men and women in the armed forces deserve specialized attention for their legal needs.
Those clients in the military seeking a divorce need an attorney experienced in both Washington and military law. Our Seattle Family Lawyer has many years of experience representing clients in all branches of the military. Even if you are active duty or deployed overseas, our Seattle Divorce Lawyer can represent your case.
All clients in need of a military divorce should be aware of the Uniformed Services Former Spouse Protection Act (USFSPA). This federal law mandates that a divorcing civilian spouse may be entitled to a portion of the military spouse’s pension. A judge will rule for this action on a case-by-case basis, similar to the way spousal support would be determined. The amount of child support a service member may pay is not to exceed 60% of their pay.
Being a member of the military should not impact your standing to be eligible for custody of your child. A Seattle Family Lawyer can protect your rights and ensure that you are treated fairly by the court in this regard.
Our legal team is dedicated to providing the best quality legal representation for our servicemen and women. If you are a military spouse seeking a divorce, contact the law office of V. Freitas Law today to discuss the next steps of your case.
