    Military Divorce Laws

    Actually there is no such thing as military divorce laws or UCMJ divorce laws. While
    we receive numerous searches each month to our site for the keywords "Military
    Divorce Laws", "UCMJ Divorce Laws" and "Military Divorce Lawyer" these are only
    concepts and perceptions. There are no legal statutes that govern divorce for
    military members, retirees and their spouses.

    What most people are looking for when they perform these types of searches is a
    civil trial lawyer with state court experience representing military members and their
    families. If you are the one performing these types of searches then you have
    arrived at the right place.
    Military Attorneys Online is a directory dedicated to helping members of the   
    "military family" find the right lawyer. Each of the attorneys in our directory has
    met a minimum level of experience representing Service members, retirees,
    veterans and their spouses. Learn more about our member qualifications.

    While it is important to hire an experienced family law attorney, you should also
    make sure you're represented by someone who understands the legal and lifestyle
    situation of members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.

    Other Family Law Issues Related to the Military
    In addition to military divorce, other family law issues require special attention
    when one or both parties serve in the military:

    •        Alimony (Spousal support)
    •        Child custody and visitation
    •        Child support
    •        Military Benefits
    •        Paternity
    •        Property division

    Pension Issues are one of the more complicated situations. A military pension is
    an asset and thus is subject to division. However, that pension may provide the sole
    source of income during retirement. An attorney experienced in this area can help
    protect the interests of clients and work out agreements that serve their needs.
