Military families are just like civilian families in so many ways. However, they are different in that many families in the military make sacrifices that civilian families just never have to make. When a member of the family is in the military, they can be deployed and away from home for long stretches of time. That can put stress on the family unit.
Sometimes a marriage can disintegrate to the point where dissolving the marriage makes more sense than staying in it. Military families have more options in terms of their divorce. They can get married when one spouse is deployed overseas or out of state, they have a choice in where they file. Most civilians have to file in their state of residency. Child custody issues will need to be decided if the marriage yielded children.
Military families have every right to seek family law services. At Maggio Law Firm, PC, we know and respect this truth and are here to help families who need help with family law issues. Divorce can feel life altering for those involved. That can include children who have a new lifestyle after a family law child in child custody.
Military family law has special circumstances that civilian divorces do not have. It’s important to understand the differences and how military law is different. Finding a solution for your unique situation is possible. At Maggio Law Firm, PC, we are happy to help all families, including military families, find the family law answers they seek.
