Our attorneys have been providing skilled guidance to government employees for more than four decades on a broad range of divorce and family law issues. We recognize that each case is unique. We provide personalized attention to our clients who seek favorable resolutions tailored to their needs.
Identifying, Preserving and Properly Dividing Government Benefits
Our experience with all aspects of civilian and military family law matters enables us to address the unique needs of government employees and civil servants who are going through separation or divorce. Our understanding of the laws which regulate government employee benefits as well as our understanding of property division laws in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C., make our firm indispensable during contentious equitable distribution proceedings.
We have represented clients from all government sectors. We are well-versed in the benefit plans and pension requirements for each agency. Through detailed inspection of benefits, including the rules of vesting and accumulation, we are able to calculate a fair division of these types of assets.
Addressing Complex Issues in Civil Service Divorce
Our lawyers work aggressively for our clients’ rights in divorces involving civil service employees and retirees. We have a long history of addressing a number of complex issues:
- The Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS)
- The Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS)
- Thrift Savings Plan (TSP)
- Government health care coverage and insurance
- Government life insurance and survivor benefit plans
- Basic custody arrangements
- Complex custody arrangements for international clients
Although we offer mediation and arbitration services to civil servants going through uncontested divorces, we understand that litigation may be necessary to resolve certain disputes. At PGD Law PLLC, we are prepared to pursue either option or both if it serves the client.
The attorneys of PGD Law PLLC, are also highly skilled in addressing the unique custody issues which may arise during a civil service divorce; particularly those associated with government employee travel and relocation.
