Houston Military Divorce Lawyers

Retain a Lawyer with Military Experience

Serving in the military is an honorable commitment, but what many people don’t realize is the impact that service can have on a family. With long deployments and frequent moves, military families undergo strenuous changes and face considerable stress.

Understandably, many military families require the services of a family law attorney to navigate complicated family matters. Given the strain of military service, some military marriages unfortunately end in divorce. Filing for divorce as a service member or the spouse of a service member is a process that calls for the guidance of a knowledgeable lawyer. At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, our military divorce attorneys in Houston can help you overcome the many challenges you will surely face throughout the process.

Give us a call at (281) 476-9447 to discuss your case with our team today.

Special Considerations for Military Divorce

Though many aspects of divorce for military service members are the same for civilians, there are a few unique considerations to keep in mind.

Our military divorce attorneys in Houston can help you with:

  • Residency and filing requirements: Depending on where the service member is stationed or deployed, it can be difficult to determine where the couple should file for divorce. At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we understand how to assess this concern on a case-by-case basis and ensure that you are able to file for divorce in Texas.
  • Property division: Careful consideration should be paid to military retirement benefits during the property division process. We can help you determine whether you or your spouse’s military retirement benefits are considered community or separate property.
  • Child custody and child support: Service members who have children understand the pain of spending time away from their children. We can represent you to ensure that your custody arrangement is fair, lawful, and in the best interests of all children involved.
