Family Lawyers Helping Service Members Facing Divorce in
The men and women of the United States armed forces put themselves in harm’s way on a daily basis in the service of freedom and to protect our way of life, and they do it voluntarily. As many people have learned, serving in the U.S. military can put a great deal of strain on your marriage and family life. While some couples are able to navigate their issues and remain married, others often choose to divorce.
At the offices of Douglass & Runger, Attorneys at Law, our team recognizes that the process of divorce can be complicated and stressful for service members and their spouses. Any divorce is likely to be difficult, but there are unique laws and other concerns that apply when a member of the military gets divorced, and our compassionate, knowledgeable team is ready to assist you and your loved ones through the process.

Certain federal laws also apply to specific elements of asset distribution in a divorce involving a military member. The Uniform Services Former Spouses Protection Act, for example, specifies whether and when the military member’s service pension can be considered marital property in a divorce. There are other provisions that may apply, as well, to facilitate the equitable distribution of marital property.
