My Connecticut military family law firm represents active duty and retired military servicemen, servicewomen and their spouses in military divorce. I can guide you through the process, providing clear explanations for how your service, or your spouse's service, in the armed services affects several parts of your divorce.
The Brian D. Kaschel Law Office has significant knowledge of divorce laws and the ways in which military families are affected by these laws.

Additionally, retirement benefits are governed by federal law, and this is often the most contentious part of a military divorce. Civilian spouses can be entitled to full or partial military benefits, depending on the length of marriage.
In addition to residency requirements, timelines and government benefits, I handle all other elements of divorce:
