In-Depth Knowledge Of Military Divorce For New York Couples

Few New York attorneys have the extensive experience and in-depth knowledge necessary to handle complex military divorces.

I am family law attorney Keith Schulefand. Brave men and women who are serving their country and their spouses come to me for help during this emotionally challenging time. Specific areas of I handle regarding military divorce include:

Child support Calculating income presents challenges when determining child support for military personnel. Salary and variables that include active duty pay and housing allowances must be examined with great detail to ensure an accurate accounting.

Pension division I recognize the challenges of dividing a military pension. A marriage must have lasted 10 years, and the spouse in the military must have 10 years of service before division of retirement benefits can be considered.

Custody and visitation With military personnel serving around the world, custody and visitation becomes especially challenging. My job is to help you reach a resolution that is in the best interests of the children.

Marital asset division Dividing assets can become contentious regardless of the spouse’s profession. My job is to get to the facts and use experts when necessary to achieve a fair division of marital assets.
