Helping Military Professionals and Families Through Divorce
Serving Virginia, including Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Tidewater
Each marital separation involves a host of specific issues that only a personalized strategy can address. Military divorces carry the same complexities as civilian divorces while adding unique issues and demands.
At the law offices of Montagna & Montagna, P.C., we take time to sit down and discuss these issues specifically with you before recommending a strategy. Contact us for a free consultation to learn how we can take some of the stress out of your military divorce.
Experienced Military Veteran and Divorce Attorneys
Anthony Montagna, Jr., is a United States Navy veteran, former JAG Corps officer, and retired Captain from the United States Naval Reserve. He understands the complicated family law issues that arise while in the military, and he has passed this information onto his son and partner, Anthony Montagna III.
Together, our law firm has successfully resolved disputes for military members at the Norfolk Naval Base, Little Creek, Oceana Air Station, Norfolk Air Station and Langley Air Force Base. Our decades of service to our country and our military divorce clients give us a unique understanding that you cannot find at other law firms.
Legal Issues Specific to Military Divorces
In what state can we bring our marriage dissolution/divorce? There are specific legal rules about where a spouse can bring a dissolution action. Contact us to learn how these rules may affect you.
Who receives military pensions and survivor benefits? Military pensions are divided differently than other marital property. The court looks at the number of months you were in the military during your marriage to determine what amounts of the pension each spouse may be entitled to receive.
Our law firm will fight for a fair division of your marital property, including your military pensions.
Does service prevent divorce? Under the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act (SSCRA), a service member (including those in the National Guard or Reserve) may ask the court to temporarily stop divorce, child custody, child support or other court proceedings while they are on active duty.
What if a spouse needs to move? If you must move a significant distance away from your spouse and that move will affect your children, you may need specific permission from the court. We can help you get that permission or fight to keep your children near you.
