Columbia Military Divorce Attorney

Any family going through a divorce feels the impact of the hardship. However, when a military family faces a divorce, there are unique circumstances that apply to their specific situation. Issues in child custody, child support and alimony can become complex when one spouse is an active duty member of the military, especially if he or she is deployed. Coming from a military background myself, I understand the complex family and legal issues that military families face during a divorce process, and I can help represent your interests.

An Air Force Veteran and Attorney Addressing Your Issues in Military Divorces

Based on regulations, a military member must now seek a family lawyer outside of the service to represent him or her in actions of divorce. As a former member of the United States Air Force, and a veteran of Operation Desert Shield/Storm, I am in a unique position to understand the military lifestyle, and I can address the legal aspects of a military divorce.

Some of the major divorce issues I help military families with include:

  • Defining legal residency for service members
  • Military child support and custody
  • Issues of temporary custody when service members are deployed
  • Military benefits such as housing and pensions
  • Special protection from certain divorce regulations to due service status

Legal issues will vary depending on your family, your military position and your duty status. An initial consultation with my firm is a great opportunity for you to have your questions and concerns answered and to learn how I can help.
