Child Custody and Visitation 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 permanent change of station (PCS). We can also seek modifications to court 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). If you believe the support arrangement you are considering or already have in place is unbalanced or provides too little support for you and your child, an experienced attorney can help you establish an arrangement that meets your needs.

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 Allowance for Housing involves the amount you are entitled to while living off 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 change of station or deployment, or if you are facing divorce, we can assist you in protecting your rights.

Paternity Issues For Service Members

We represent individuals seeking to establish or challenge paternity involving military members. Our attorneys will fully investigate the facts of your case to present compelling evidence on your behalf, including DNA evidence. In the event that paternity is established, we can assist you with visitation rights or child support situations as well.
