Divorce Rates Increasing Among Military Families

Posted by Jay R. Bloom | Jul 15, 2014 | 0 Comments

Divorce rates are at an all-time high in our society, and military families are among the hardest hit.  The stresses of a military life can be difficult for any marriage in the best of times, but in a time of war and multiple deployments military marriages are being put to the ultimate test.  At Katz and Bloom, we believe that in times of crisis in a marriage, our troops and their spouses deserve the same support we strive as a country to give them across the board.  Those in need of a Criminal Defense Attorney, Personal Injury Attorney, or someone to help with Wills and Trusts have always had a friend in us.  In that same spirit, our family lawyers bring compassion and common sense to divorce or other family law proceedings in order to ensure the best outcome for all parties involved.

Those who know about us know that our attorneys are practiced in all areas of family law including divorce, paternity, child support, child disputes, alimony, legal separation, and more.  For a military man or woman already dealing with the stresses of one of the most difficult jobs at one of the most trying times in the history of our military, such expertise and commitment to their legal concerns is a welcome relief.

It is important to remember that military laws are different as it pertains to divorce, and may not be applicable to civilian divorces.  Military pensions, for example, are divisible but subject to different rules than private retirement accounts.  Alimony and child support are also determined differently due to certain government regulations.  In fact, federal laws can also determine where the parties end up in court.  In short, it is vital to secure a lawyer who is well-versed in the intricacies of military divorce or who, at the very least, is willing to work with a consultant who is.  At Katz and Bloom, our family lawyers are more than up to the task.

The challenge of balancing a military career and a family life is a precarious one, particularly in such trying times for our men and women in uniform. Let us work with you toward an equitable outcome for you and your family, and serve you in the same spirit in which you've served all of us.
