Family, Employment and Housing

Family law and employment law issues have additional complications for the military and their families.

Certain laws and legal rights are extended to military members. As with all things, the more you know about an issue, the better prepared you are to deal with it when it arises.

The sections below contain information about family, housing, and employment law issues faced by military members.

Servicemembers face many of the same everyday legal issues as their civilian counterparts. Divorce and discrimination still happen and have legal repercussions and processes.

Being in the military doesn't make you immune to child support orders, for example. You still have to handle debts and obligations occurring outside of your role as a service member.

A military law attorney focused on family law and divorce can help smooth the process. Or you may need a general military attorney who focuses on criminal defense, administrative issues, or employment laws.
