Military Divorce

At Schwam-Wilcox & Associates, our military divorce lawyers are proud to provide representation to service members stationed at Patrick Air Force Base, Naval Air Warfare Center and other locations in Orlando and throughout Central Florida. We represent members of the Air Force, Navy, Army, Marines, Coast Guard and other branches of the military, as well as their spouses, in divorce and all divorce-related matters.

What Makes Military Divorce Different

Several factors make military divorce different from civilian divorce. First of all, there are unique laws that impact these cases, primarily the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act (SSCRA). It is important that you choose an attorney with in-depth knowledge of this law and how it applies to divorce, property division, child custody and visitation, and other matters. You will find that our attorneys are well-versed in this law. We also utilize the guidance of a military consultant when needed.

We know how to address issues such as the division of military pensions and retirement funds. We are skilled at handling complex child custody and visitation issues involving military personnel stationed out of state or even overseas. No matter what challenges your case involves, you can be confident that you have a skilled advocate on your side.

You Deserve Fair Treatment

The spouse who is not in the military may fear that his or her spouse will use military membership as a sword and a shield. That is not the intention of the law. Protections are provided to both parties. Whether you are in the military or the spouse of a military member, we will work hard to see that you are treated fairly during your divorce.
