Given the amount of marital stress that is faced by couples who have to deal with the events of wartime, relocation and other matters involving the Armed Forces, it is unfortunately not surprising that many of these couples pursue divorce as an option for their marriages. Military divorce involves many additional complex issues and legal rights that must be taken into account to complete the process successfully.

The rights of each spouse must be protected, including their rights to property division, child custody and child support. Divorce is already complex and it is even more important to work with an experienced divorce attorney when a military divorce is involved.
