Understanding benefits eligibility after a military divorce

When you live in Virginia and enter into a marriage with a member of the U.S. Armed Forces, you get to take advantage of certain military benefits, among them health care benefits and use of military commissaries. At Madigan and Scott, Inc., we field many questions from clients wondering if they can continue to utilize these services once their marriages end, and we have helped many people leaving military marriages navigate these and other military divorce-related issues.

Virginian residents who get a traffic ticket also have the option of deciding whether or not to contest it.
