Divorce and Annulment

Dedicated Belton, Temple, Killeen & Bell County, Texas, Divorce Lawyers

If you’re considering filing for divorce, there are many factors to bear in mind. Divorce involves emotionally charged issues, and consequently most divorce proceedings are contentious and emotionally draining. Many people fail to think of everything that needs consideration when they contemplate divorce. Having an experienced divorce attorney can help ensure everything is thought of, weighed, and considered.

At the Pearson Law Firm, we have significant experience representing clients in divorce cases. Our experience includes: contested divorces, uncontested divorces, military divorces, temporary restraining orders, protective orders, temporary injunctions, interim child support, spousal support (alimony), division of property, business evaluations and divisions, name changes, annulments, and temporary orders.

Military Divorce
If you’re a member of the armed services or married to a service member, you need to be aware of issues unique to military divorces. For instance, a federal statute authorizes active service members to delay a divorce proceeding in some situations. In addition, military pensions, alimony and child support are subject to specific rules not applicable in civilian divorces. Whether, and to what extent, a service member’s spouse is entitled to part of the pension depends on many factors. Most divorce lawyers aren’t familiar with these issues.

And don’t forget there are military regulations which come into play when you are separated from your spouse. You may not understand how those military regulations are affecting by a court order which conflicts, but the attorneys at the Pearson Law Firm do.

As a former captain in the U.S. Army Reserve, attorney Michael Miller is familiar with the special rules unique to military divorces, and attorney Joshua Pearson grew up with a father in the Army who served for more than 26 years. These two attorneys understand military matters and how they apply to you and your family.
