Helping New Mexico spouses through a military divorce

Being married to a spouse that is in the armed forces can sometimes add some complications to the relationship that people in civilian marriages do not encounter. And while some New Mexico couples are able to overcome these marital problems, others decide it is best to end their union. While much of the divorce process is the same for civilian and military couples, there are several important aspects that spouses will need to carefully consider when going through a military divorce.

Military divorce issues often revolve around the government benefits and rights that are afforded to members in the armed forces. When a military couple goes through dissolution, it is important for them to consider military benefits such as medical benefits, retirement benefits, commissary benefits and other similar benefits.

Military laws define how these benefits will be divided. The law firm of Atkinson & Kelsey, P.A., is very knowledgeable of these and other applicable laws. With over 40 years of experience, our attorneys are dedicated to helping clients navigate their divorce issues. Whether it is an issue regarding military benefits, division of assets or child custody, we have helped past clients successfully handle all of their divorce issues.

When initiating and progressing through the divorce process, it is important that spouses take an appropriate approach. To learn more, check out our firm's military divorce website. This could provide general information to spouses, helping them make informed decisions and protect their rights throughout the divorce process. Divorce is seldom easy, but with knowledge and legal help, it can at least be as smooth of a process as possible.
