The legal team at Musulin Law Firm will take great care to access your particular facts and circumstances in order to advise you about the appropriate division of marital assets as opposed to the nondivision of personal property.
  • Military healthcare benefits: Through programs such as Tricare, it is possible for former spouses of military members to retain healthcare benefits if they qualify.
  • Military retirement benefits: The division of retirement benefits can be complicated and contentious in a military divorce. The Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act (USFSPA) allows the courts to divide military retirement assets as they would any other marital asset in a divorce and it gives former spouses of military members a mechanism for obtaining these benefits.
