Comparing civilian and military protective orders

For many of the military families with whom we work here at The Law Office of Roland R. Esparza, P.C., domestic violence is a continual concern. If you have been the victim of it, you are not alone. In fact, information shared by SFGate.com shows that nearly 21 percent of reported domestic violence cases in the U.S have been attributed to military personnel. If you are looking to separate from an abusive spouse that is in the military, then you doubt want to ensure that you, your children, and the rest of family are protected from him or her. However, if you fail to file for a protective order through the proper channels, that protection may not be guaranteed.

Deployment nearly costs mother the custody of her kids

Military service can be difficult for families in San Antonio, particularly when the serviceman or woman in the family is deployed. Not only does he or she have to be concerned about what’s going on at home, but the family left behind also has to deal with the issues surrounding his or her deployment. Should family issues arise while military men and women are away from home, it is encouraged that they develop a Family Care Plan that stipulates who will take care of the kids while they’re gone. Yet even a plan such as this cannot guarantee that a member of the military may not have to face family law issues while deployed.

What is an LES?

When military couples in San Antonio choose to divorce, there are a number of unique military documents that need be examined relative to their proceedings. One of these is a Leave and Earnings Statement, and while you and your spouse may be well-acquainted with it, you may not realize just how important it can be during a divorce. The website Military.com reported that the divorce rate amongst military families was 3.1 percent in 2014. If you and your spouse are among those numbers, having a strong knowledge of how your documents apply to your military divorce proceedings is vital.
