Benefits And Military Divorce
If you or your spouse was in the military and you have been married for at least one year, then under Texas law, the non-military spouse has accrued a claim for retirement based on the person’s rank at the time of divorce. Specific formulas dictate the benefits that each spouse is entitled to at the time of divorce. Whether you are a member of the military or your spouse is a member of the military and you are seeking to protect your claims and benefits, an experienced military divorce attorney can assist you in protecting your rights and future benefits.
Child Support And Custody In Military Divorce
Children of military service members are often involved in difficult legal battles in the event that a parent is deployed. The Law Offices of Randy Wilson and Kristin Postell, PLLC handles cases of custody, and child visitation during deployment or duty station transfer. We can also seek modifications to custody orders if one parent is unable to pay child support or fulfill existing custody or visitation obligations.
Attention To Detail
When the court determines child support obligations, it will consider all sources of military income, including combat pay and Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH). However, you may receive a disproportionately high BAH if you are stationed in a foreign location with a high cost of living. A seasoned advocate will point out this discrepancy to the judge to help ensure that your child support payments are fair.

Allowance After A Divorce
Net earnings for child support computation may depend on whether the spouse is living off base. If you are a spouse seeking additional compensation, a greater allowance or benefits, we can represent you in your case. Basic Quarters Allowance (BQA) involves the amount you are entitled to while living on base. The Basic Allowance for Subsistence (BAS) provides you with a grocery allowance and will be adjusted depending on the income of a service member and where you are stationed. If you need assistance recovering child support from a spouse who has attempted to exempt BAH or BAS from his or her net earnings or if you need to modify your child support due to an increase in net earnings or a decrease in net earnings in anticipation of a duty station transfer or deployment, or if you are facing divorce, we can assist you in protecting your rights.
