When it comes to military divorce, the right representation can make all the difference. Factors including the number of years married, a military member’s rank and the military spouse’s employment situation all come into play.

Child Custody

When military members are deployed or get a PCS, custody and parenting agreements can become extremely complicated. Our Beaufort child custody lawyers will work with you to put your children’s best interests first.

Division of Assets & Debt

Military families may have homes in different states and VA loans, in addition to other assets and debts. The division of marital property is challenging when the military spouse has been unemployed. Understand your rights and obligations.

Military Benefits

Military spouses and their children are entitled to a share of the service member’s Thrift Savings Plan (TSP), Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP), military pension and tricare health benefits (children only). Fender Law will ensure you get what you’re owed.

Spousal Support

Most military spouses sacrifice rewarding careers and employment opportunities to look after the family. Starting over after a divorce will require financial support. Our team will ensure you get the resources you need to begin your new journey.
