Mesa Military Divorce Lawyer
Serving Luke AFB & the Surrounding Communities
On the surface, a
divorce involving military personnel is no different than any other divorce, as
most of the same laws will apply. However, factors such as deployment,
being stationed in another state, and unique military benefits can all
make the process much more complex.
Due to the unique complications of a military divorce, it’s crucial
to retain a Mesa divorce lawyer who has experience with these cases. You’ll
find such representation at Bastian Law Offices, where
Attorney Cole Bastian has focused on family law for more than a decade. When you retain our
firm, you can expect compassionate representation from an attorney who
truly understands the unique challenges of a military divorce.
Our founding attorney has more than a decade of experience in family law.

Child Custody in a Military Divorce
One of the biggest impacts a spouse’s military status can have on
a divorce is the
child custody order. The courts will always try to act in the best interests of the
children, so if one parent is deployed overseas, stationed in another
state, or is at risk of either, a judge will generally give sole physical
custody to the other parent. Total support payments, including
child support, typically cannot exceed 60% of the military member’s allowances and pay.
Military Property Division
One of the more complex aspects of any divorce is the
division of property. If you are an active or retired member of the military, your spouse may
receive up to half of your military retirement benefits. However, a spouse
is only eligible to receive part of a military pension if they were married
for at least 10 years, during which time the other spouse was on active duty.
