Military Divorce Lawyer in Virginia Beach
Representing Military Service Members and Their Families
Life in the military puts an undeniable strain on members’ marriages. The constant traveling and looming risk of injury or death for service members deployed into combat zones are stressful for families. When service members and their families go through a divorce, the fact that each state has a unique set of divorce laws can further complicate matters.
If you are looking for a Virginia Beach divorce attorney with experience handling military divorces, my firm can help you. I, Keri A. Markiewicz, am intimately familiar with the interplay between Virginia state family law and the federal laws and regulations that govern enlisted and commissioned military officers. I am dedicated to providing my clients with trustworthy legal guidance backed by compassionate and results-driven advocacy.
If you or your spouse is a military service member, contact my office online or by telephone at (757) 204-6991 to schedule a free consultation regarding your options for divorce or other family law matters.
Common Military Divorce Issues
Military service members and their families face particular family law issues other marriages don’t necessarily encounter, such as:
- Residency issues for overseas families;
- Civil lawsuit requirements under the Service Members’ Civil Relief Act (SCRA);
- Application of the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (USFSPA); and
- Garnishment of Veterans Benefits for spousal and child support matters.
