Serving Baltimore Service Members in Family Law and Divorce Matters

Although military divorce and other military family law issues are not decided in a military court, they are decided in state courts and different laws from those triggered in a civilian divorce or other family law action may come into play.

More importantly, not all Maryland military family law attorneys are experienced in military divorce. Military families contemplating divorce should seek out lawyers who understand these differences and have experience with them. At the Law Offices of Corrie A. Boulay, we know what is involved in these matters and we represent men and women who need this type of skilled assistance.

The stipulated time that someone has to inform the other party of their intention to file is different if the service member is on active duty and in theater. The Service members Civil Relief Act (SCRA) allows a service member to postpone the proceedings for 90 days or longer.

We understand the need to keep divorce from affecting one’s career or security clearance. We also understand the unique challenges of dividing military pensions and benefits. Under the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act, or USFSPA, only the state where the military member lives has the power to divide the military pension in a divorce. We understand where to file a divorce action so a court has the authority to divide the pension.

Service members are also required by law to provide adequate child support. Our military family law attorney’s know how to navigate these child support guidelines to make sure a fair amount is arrived at that covers the needs of the children.
