When a military couple divorces, as in most cases, child support issues can arise. The difference, though, is that the military can approach child support payments differently than civilian courts.
Even the interim agreement or the temporary support agreement must take into account military regulations on child or spousal support. Military regulations can intersect with the domestic laws in Virginia, so it is extremely important to work with an attorney who is knowledgeable of both worlds.
Attorneys may need to work with JAG officers to fully understand how a child or spousal support determination will be made in a military family. The attorneys at Smith Strong know how to effectively navigate through divorces that involve both military and Commonwealth of Virginia regulations.
