Guiding You Through The Unique Issues Associated With Military Divorce
The Law Center P.C. is proud to represent members of the U.S. armed forces and their spouses in Colorado Springs, throughout El Paso County, and across the state. Due to the integration of cutting-edge technology into our practice, we can use video conferencing and other tools to serve clients in both urban centers and remote locations. As the father of an active duty Marine Corps officer, managing director Robert Wareham knows the challenges of military marriages and divorces.
Addressing Issues Raised By Reserve Time Vs. Active-Duty Time
One issue of great complexity in military divorces is delineating between reserve time and active-duty time. This has become a particular concern in recent years since a large percentage of reservists have been called up for active duty.
Our attorneys know how to accurately identify the issues at stake, and we bring in additional experts as needed to fairly divide military pensions and other retirement assets. We also leverage the skills of paraprofessionals to resolve your divorce faster and at a lower cost than other firms.
Colorado Law Protects The Rights Of Parents Who Are Deployed
In most situations, a parent separated from his or her child for more than six months is in danger of having his or her parental rights challenged. However, Colorado passed a statute to protect the parental rights of active-duty military personnel, ensuring that their rights are not prejudiced by deployment.
Protecting Our Clients’ Security Clearances
We have represented many military and ex-military personnel associated with the defense industry, such as employees of Lockheed Martin. We have particular expertise resolving divorces that include criminal charges and accusations. An allegation of domestic violence or a DUI charge can seriously affect a person’s livelihood, since a conviction may result in the revocation of his or her security clearance.
Clients trust us to diligently and intelligently advocate on their behalf in both the family law and criminal justice arenas. Our comprehensive legal practice allows us to provide reliable counsel that takes into account our clients’ full range of issues and concerns.
