Supreme Court rules on military divorce case

A previous blog post discussed a case that came before the Supreme Court of the United States, Howell v. Howell. The Court has now released its final ruling in this case regarding the proper distribution of benefits following a retired service member's divorce.

Legal defenses to assault

In Mississippi, those convicted of assault can face serious penalties, including fines and jail time. However, depending on the nature of the alleged assault, there are legal defenses that may mitigate potential penalties.

How is child support affected by joint custody?

One of factors taken into consideration when determining child support is how much time each parent will spend with the child. If a child lives with one parent, that parent has primary physical custody and will usually receive child support since they are mostly responsible for the child's everyday expenses.

Former spouse coverage under the Survivor Benefits Plan

The military retirement system provides service members with a generous pension starting from the day they retire. In the case of a military divorce, former spouses of retired service members can receive a portion of that retirement pay.

A military divorce can affect your pension

Joining the military changes almost all aspects of your life. It might even change how you get divorced. While the process is generally the same as it is for civilians, a military divorce comes with some extra issues than can carry long-term effects. Not only will you have to address issues concerning deployments and the custody of your children, you will also have to consider the impact the divorce will have on your retirement.
