Why You Need A Military Divorce Attorney
Military families face a host of unique challenges, and unfortunately divorce is no different. Military divorces are governed by a complex legal framework involving both federal and Colorado state laws, as well as military-specific regulations and protections.
Even the most seasoned family law attorneys can struggle to grasp the nuances of military divorce proceedings. That’s why, if you are involved in a military divorce, you should immediately enlist the help of an attorney with specialized knowledge in military family law.
Issues that seem straightforward in civilian divorces are often not so simple for service members. For example, a Colorado court must have jurisdiction, or the authority to hear the case, before it can grant a divorce to military members or their spouses. For civilians, jurisdiction is generally determined by the place where the person lives. However, for military personnel, jurisdiction could be the place where the service member legally resides, even if the service member is stationed elsewhere.
Our military divorce attorneys will be your staunchest advocates, whether you’re a service member or married to a service member. We will do our best to educate you on all your available options and guide you toward the best possible outcome for both you and your family.
