San Diego Military Divorce Attorneys

For the married men and women who serve our country, marriage can be an uphill battle. Unlike most civilian couples, members of our armed forces experience unique circumstances that can put extra strains on a marriage such as long periods of separation, frequent moves, or other issues. Military divorce proceedings require a unique approach in the way they are handled and executed, and at Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, we are committed to providing military couples with the same care and quality representation as our civilian clients, while handling their cases with the experienced and tailored representation they they require.

No Matter the Reason

As with all couples, there is rarely a definitive factor that causes divorce. Divorce proceedings for military couples happen because of a variety of factors. For whatever reason your marriage has ended, we understand that divorce is one of the hardest situations one can endure. That’s why we work with compassion and diligence to help you pursue a favorable divorce agreement. Whatever your situation, our attorneys will handle your case with professionalism and care.

Where To Start

If you are currently on leave for active duty, there are several options available if you wish to file for divorce. Filing options can include:

  • The state where you reside.
  • The state where the military member is stationed.
  • The state in which the military member claims legal residency.

Divorce proceedings are subject to the laws of the state in which papers are filed. The laws in this state will also determine child custody, child support, and property division.
At Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, not only do we make sure that our clients fully understand the implications of where they file for divorce, but we also ensure that the couple is fully aware of all terms and conditions set forth in the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act. This act determines awards, such as military pay and child support, that are provided to the ex-spouse of a service member following a divorce.
