Military life can be hard on families. Many people visiting our site are going through divorce and legal separation. Military families need to be aware of the ways in which their states' divorce laws intersect with rules around division of military pensions, how disability benefits factor into child support determinations, and other military-related legal issues.
For families with these questions, we offer these popular pages:
- Divorce In Military Families – How It’s Different & What You Need To Know
- Child Support and Veterans Benefits - Q and A
- Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act
We also are happy to provide links to selected "Legal Eagle" web content authored by Attorney Mark Sullivan, a retired Army Reserve JAG Colonel and nationally recognized expert in military-related family law issues.
There are not enough free and pro bono lawyers in the country to help everyone who needs help with divorce issues. But we hope that what you learn here will make you better informed about the issues that you will face in divorce court in your state.
