Harrisburg Military Divorce Lawyer

Trusted Advice & Compassionate Care in Central Pennsylvania

Serving in the military often strains the marriages that soldiers and their families built. Sometimes, the effects of deployments or domestic service can weaken a marriage to the point where both spouses decide that it may be time to file for a divorce.

You need an attorney who understands the special aspects and needs of a military divorce. Contact The Law Office of Jason R. Carpenter at (717) 537-0928.

Family Law Representation for All Military Branches

Military divorces are a special type of divorce in that they are subject to both state and federal laws. It takes the hand of a trusted Harrisburg divorce attorney to ensure you navigate the process in an effective manner.

We have resolved military divorces for service members stationed at bases throughout Central Pennsylvania, including:

  • Carlisle Barracks
  • Fort Indiantown Gap
  • Harrisburg Military Post
  • Letterkenny Army Depot
  • New Cumberland Army Depot

Dividing Military Benefits During Divorce

When one or both spouses are active members of the military, the division of marital assets becomes more complicated.

The Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act (USFSPA) outlines whether a former spouse is eligible to receive military benefits after the divorce is final, including:

  • Health care coverage
  • Military pensions
  • Commissary and exchange privileges
  • Survivor benefits

It is important to note that not all former spouses are eligible to receive a portion of the service member's retirement benefits. We will provide an in-depth analysis of your case to determine what portion of the military benefits your spouse is entitled to receive. Our team has a thorough understanding of the USFSPA and will work to protect your rights every step of the way.

In addition to military benefits, we are also prepared to represent your best interests for a broad range of family law matters, including:
