MILITARY DIVORCE LAWYERS IN ALBUQUERQUE, NM

The military divorce lawyers at Terry & deGraauw, P.C., are committed to helping active duty military members achieve a satisfactory divorce in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We have extensive experience handling military divorce cases and will work diligently to address all of the special concerns that you face as a member of the military.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS IN ABQ MILITARY DIVORCE CASES

Military divorce proceedings occur in state civil courts, not military courts. However, members of the military face special considerations. For that reason, you need a military divorce attorney familiar with military divorce proceedings in New Mexico. At Terry & deGraauw, P.C., we work with military members who are located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as well as out of state and overseas. We are seasoned attorneys who have encountered a wide range of legal issues that arise in military divorces:

  • Child custody issues can be even more difficult to resolve in military divorce cases. Military parents often require relocation that could affect child custody and visitation rights. This needs to be considered when you and your former spouse work out the terms of your divorce.
  • Property division is another complex issue in military divorce. Military retirement plans are often valuable assets that could be divided between you and your former spouse. Your other military benefits that appear on your Leave and Earnings Statement may also affect the outcome of your divorce.

The division of your military benefits may have a major impact on property division, spousal support and child support arrangements. Even if your divorce is uncontested, you still need an experienced New Mexico military divorce attorney at your side to protect your family and your assets.
