Call today to schedule a consultation, with one of our San Diego military family law lawyers, at (858) 458-9500.

Experienced In Handling Military Divorce Issues

Obtaining a military divorce is similar to obtaining a civilian divorce. While the individual set of circumstances may seem complex, the basic rules still apply. California is a no-fault state, so either spouse may file for divorce without proving cause. There are instances, however, which tend to be unique to military families. Certain aspects of your case, especially those involving child custody, are stayed if one is deployed.

Also, disputes often arise as to how an armed services member's housing allowances should be calculated for purposes of spousal support. Military members are also concerned as to how their pensions will be divided under California community property laws. If you are facing divorce and military issues are involved then contact an attorney immediately.

Our San Diego divorce lawyers have extensive experience in assisting military families through the process. This is true whether you are filing for a contested divorce or an uncontested divorce. Having an attorney who understands how California divorce laws apply to military pensions, housing allowances, and deployment issues can make the difference between your divorce being handled correctly or incorrectly. Contact our San Diego military divorce attorneys today to gain immediate assistance with your divorce matter.
