Few New York attorneys have the extensive experience and in-depth knowledge necessary to handle complex military divorces. Keith B. Schulefand, the founder of our Buffalo firm, is skilled in the unique aspects of this very specific type of marital dissolution. Brave men and women who are serving their country and their spouses come to him for help during an emotionally challenging time. Specific areas of our military divorce practice 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 — At the law office of Keith B. Schulefand, Esq., we 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. Our 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. Our job is to get to the facts and use experts when necessary to achieve a fair division of marital assets.
