Divorce And Military Personnel
Our divorce lawyers work with soldiers, war veterans and spouses of veterans who are going through a divorce when one party is still serving in the military. In addition to helping our military clientele through the divorce process, our divorce lawyers can help by establishing powers of attorney for our clients, so we can act in their best legal interests when they are away serving.

Our divorce attorneys will make sure you understand your rights and options when it comes to the following rules governing military divorce:
- Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA)
