Assisting Military Families With Child Custody

For military families, the issue of child custody can be extremely complicated. Although child custody matters are addressed legally in much the same way as in civilian divorce cases, military members have duties and deployments that come into play. It is imperative that any matter involving military child custody is managed by an attorney with a great deal of experience in both state and military law.

If you are a military member considering divorce, you need experienced legal counsel to protect your rights and child custody arrangement. Call our Palm Desert office at 760-340-4545 to speak to an attorney well-versed in military law and family law.

Know Your Rights As A Service Member

Child custody is an extremely important issue and it should be handled with the utmost care and compassion. As employees of the United States military, married parents are frequently required to deploy to locations where their children cannot follow. These issues must be addressed with a high level of professional legal skill. An emergency care plan can be created to name an appropriate guardian for short-term custody in case of immediate deployment. You may also establish a guardianship for the care of children in certain situations.

For military employees, the Servicemembers Relief Act was passed in 2003 in an effort to provide protection from legal action while deployed. California Senate Bill 1082 serves to extend these rights to Reservists and National Guardsmen for child custody matters. Members of the military who are presented with legal action from a spouse or other individual concerning child custody decisions and child custody modifications have the right to request that legal action is halted until the deployment has concluded. The Law Office of James A. Jackson has extensive experience in all matters of military child custody, the impact of state and military justice codes on your case and how to navigate the system for your benefit.
