How is a military divorce different?

The major overarching issue that military divorces face is the applicability of both state and federal law, which may sometimes conflict with each other. Additionally, military divorces frequently involve benefits that are difficult to value and divide for attorneys who do not have a clear understanding of military law, as well as relocation issues that can introduce a considerable amount of gray area. Even jurisdiction can be an issue, since service members must file for divorce in the area where they reside rather than where they are currently stationed.

We can ensure your interests are protected during all stages of your divorce, including:
