Baltimore Maryland divorce lawyerQuestion:

My wife let our children travel out of state to visit my family while I am deployed overseas so that she could take time to receive help for her various addictions.

I fear for my children's safety while with their mother, and I do not want my family to return them to my wife when she is out of rehab.

What can I do to keep my children safe and with my family until I return home from deployment? Can my family apply for emergency custody of my children?

divorce lawyer laura langenburgQuestion:

Being retired military and receiving a military pension, is there any way that my wife could waive her claim on my retirement or any other property?

Or is the state going to divide my property, namely my military pension, regardless?

St. Louis divorce lawyerQuestion:

My older child graduated high school and is joining the military so how do I modify child support to account for my other minor child?

My ex-wife is not contesting this and we agree that I should pay 50 percent of my current child support amount since we now have one minor child rather than two.

How do I go about a child support modification since the support is paid through the state and garnished from my paycheck?

military fathers rightsBy Tara N. Brewer

A deployed soldier already has to deal with the stress of family separation. Possible changes in child custody and threats to fathers rights during deployment only compound the issue.

A new Pennsylvania bill protects the deployed soldier by stating that no changes in a child custody arrangement can occur with the child of an active-duty military servicemember, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The only exception in changing the child custody arrangement would be for the best interest of the child.  

The new law indicates that a deployed soldier can petition the court for a temporary order to assign child custody rights to family members. Also, the law permits deployed parents to testify via phone, videoconference, or other electronic means if need be.

One of the main anxieties during a military divorce is how the financial benefits are divided.

Military pensions require no minimum age and increase with the cost-of-living for the next 40 years, according to a Wall Street Journal article.

The military doesn’t provide direct retirement payments to the ex-spouse unless 10 years of marriage overlapped with 10 years of service. If this criterion isn't met, the military ex-spouse makes the decision on whether to share their pension.
