Guiding Military Families in Difficult Times
Although the basic legalities involved in a civilian divorce apply to military families, the dissolution of a marriage for individuals who serve our country can get very complex. If both spouses are members of the armed forces, it makes the matter even more difficult, especially when determining where you should file your petition for divorce.
At Shaw Law Firm, LLC, we are extensively experienced in handling military divorces. Our Charleston family law attorney offers the perceptive legal guidance you need to resolve your divorce swiftly and favorably while paying special attention to the additional complications of separating military retirement pay and determining the state of residency.
