Military Family Law Representation

Our law firm assists military members, military spouses, and military families in a variety of divorce and family law matters:

  • Child support — Determining child support can be more challenging in a military divorce. Our law firm can help you navigate the military child support process, ensuring that your child's best interests are being served. We can also assist with modifying child support if a reduction or increase of child support is warranted.

We can protect your financial interests whether you are seeking alimony or being asked to pay it. We also assist with modifications of spousal support.
