Military Divorce

Military divorce is significantly different than a civilian divorce.  The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act affects the legal rights and responsibilities of the parties.  If either party is a member of the military, it is important to understand that there is a different procedure and different requirements to the Military Divorce process.  Military families also have special circumstances which need to be taken into account when deciding the issues of Child Custody, Child Visitation, Child Support, and Spousal Support.  Military retirements are also different than civilian retirements and should be divided carefully.  Please contact Attorney Martin if you or your spouse is service member to ensure your Military Divorce is handled correctly.
