Fairfax Divorce Lawyer

We provide quality, flat-rate divorce services to clients throughout Northern Virginia, including Fairfax, Loudoun, Arlington, Alexandria and Prince William.

A military spouse may be entitled to different benefits depending on the length of the marriage and how long their spouse was active in the military. Some of these benefits include medical coverage, retirement, and survivor benefits.

Many people mistakenly believe that the 10/10 rule means that a military spouse is entitled to a portion of the service member's retirement ONLY if they were married for at least 10 years. This is actually misinformation.

Under the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act (USFSPA), VA disability is NOT divisible in divorce. However, it does count as income for purposes of calculating support.

Federal pensions are different from private pensions and require specialized orders for division. The marital share of a pension is determined by the overlap between the marriage and the employee's length of service.

A TSP works much like a 401(k) plan in that the contributions made during the marriage are considered marital property and thus subject to division in divorce. The division occurs through a court order known as a Retirement Benefits Court Order (RBCO).

A former spouse survivor annuity is an insurance plan established to pay out benefits to a former spouse upon the retiree’s death. This helps provide a former spouse the same benefits they would have been entitled to should the divorce not have happened.
