Our Tucson Family Attorney Has Extensive Knowledge

All clients in the military seeking a divorce should be educated about the Uniformed Services Former Spouse Protection Act (USFSPA). This law indicates that a divorcing civilian spouse may be entitled to a portion of the military spouse’s pension. The decision is made on a case-by-case basis, similar to the way spousal support would be determined. The amount of child support a service member may pay is not to exceed 60% of their pay.
