Military Family Law Issues

Although service members sign their names on the dotted line, their families are also very much a party to their loved one’s contract with the military. The burdens of service that can be imposed on the men and women in uniform, including regular reassignments and relocations, overseas deployments and the risks of combat, are in many ways borne moreso by their loved ones. Unfortunately, the stresses of military service can sometimes lead to the breakup of relationships and marriages. This section will cover many of the legal issues that arise for families of service members, from what steps you should take if you get married and have children while in the military to what needs to be done when a military family faces a separation or divorce. While you’re probably working hard to avoid disruptions to your family life, it's important to know the rules and resources that apply to you and your family.
