Military Family Law

Lake County Military Family Law Attorney

Lake County Military Divorce Lawyer

Family law issues are often complicated by a number of factors. One factor that may affect the way in which the case is handled is any military involvement by a spouse or a parent. When a military service member is facing a divorce or family law issue, it needs to be addressed as quickly and thoroughly as possible in order to minimize the impact and allow for the focus to stay on his or her military responsibilities. I am attorney Julie R. Glade, a divorce and family lawyer (also called a household regulation attorney), based in Merrillville, Indiana, who confidently represents military servicemen and women and their families in a wide variety of military divorce and family law matters. I am a dedicated advocate who can help divorcing clients, parents who share custody of their children or other individuals who have family law concerns. My law firm offers legal advice and family law solutions to military families throughout Indiana. In fact, I represent Indiana clients located around the globe and have experience handling issues for members of the military who are stationed abroad. Technology facilitates communication between me and my clients, allowing the case to move forward, even during deployment.

Military Divorce

The end of a relationship can be devastating on an emotional level; challenges such as litigation, worries over the well-being of your children and obstacles that arise due to military service obligations can make an already challenging process even more difficult. It may seem overwhelming as you seek to pursue a military divorce. Many specific issues must be addressed that do not impact typical civilian divorces. One of these issues is the division of property and assets, such as military retirement and pension benefits. I am able to review all of the details of the case, prepare any documents and send them to clients anywhere on the planet to ensure that your best interests are served.

Other Military Family Law Issues

Divorce is not the only household regulation issue that military members may face. My law firm is here to represent clients, married or unmarried, in a range of other legal matters, including:

  • Child custody;
  • Child support;
  • Spousal maintenace;
  • Division of military retirement and pension benefits;
  • Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) payments; and
  • Property division and division of assets.

Relocation Issues

US FlagMilitary families are often on the move. This can create a difficult situation if a parent is being required to move out of Indiana. Child custody agreements may need to be modified and child relocation laws must be followed. The child’s best interests, including their mental health and overall well-being, must be taken into consideration when facing a military relocation matter involving divorced parents. As an experienced military family law attorney in the region, I’m well equipped to help you seek assistance from the courts or out of court through mediation or another avenue.
