Military Divorce in California

Army – Navy – Coast Guard – Air Force – Marines

Dealing with a divorce is never an easy situation. From looming child custody battles to the struggles of coming up with a fair and workable solution to alimony, it can be emotionally complex and legally trying. At Cutter & Lax, Attorneys at Law, we understand just how daunting this can be. We also, however, know that these complications can be compounded when experienced by a military member. When divorces are faced with the added complexities of deployments and families moving from military base to military base, it can create elevated stress and confusion that exceeds the limits of normal circumstances.

California Military Divorce Lawyer & Retired JAG Officer

Military members and their families are unique. Their careers are highly specific, often requiring them to move from place to place – often internationally. In many cases, families may be separated for months or even years at a time. Our firm understands the pride service members take in their careers and their service to the country. We also understand that their divorces can be complicated. With an in-depth understanding of military law, we feel that we are uniquely prepared to provide service members the aggressive and experienced representation that they truly need during this troubling time.

Beyond the initial divorce filing, we also have the level of experience necessary to handle the related legal issues. We know that military members face the same complications as civilian divorces; we can help to address issues that may arise about custody, child support and alimony. We can even help if you are looking to modify a previous divorce or if you have to move away and aren't sure how that will affect your previous arrangements. No matter the circumstances that life throws at you, you can be confident in knowing our firm has the knowledge and hands-on experience necessary to help you navigate through it.
