Experienced Military Divorce Lawyers for Military Divorce and Family Support

Our military divorce lawyers serving Fort Polk are experienced and skilled in navigating the complications of military divorce, including the regulation surrounding family support. Per AR 608-99, soldiers are responsible for providing adequate financial support to family members and complying with any court orders or written financial agreements. The amount of support required is generally based upon the soldier’s BAH (Basic Allowance for Housing).

This requirement can also be overridden by civilian court order or judgment – for example, a judgment in a divorce proceeding. Certain types of “in-kind” payments may count toward the obligated compensation, such as when the spouse/family member resides in base housing. There are specified exceptions that may allow for the release of these obligations, such as those listed in 2-13 or 2-14 of the regulation.

More details regarding this regulation may be found here.

In order to understand how this regulation can impact your situation during the divorce process, consult with our military divorce lawyers in Fort Polk, Louisiana.
