Military Divorce

The divorce process can be complicated for men and women serving in the military and their spouses. Dodd & Burnham can guide you through the divorce process. With 47 years of combined legal experience, our attorneys understand the complexities of domestic relations laws.

We represent military members and their spouses in Valdosta and throughout South Georgia. Divorce is difficult — especially when you or your spouse is serving in the military. We know what steps to take and will guide you through this process so you can focus on your future.

Factors In Your Case

Divorce for military service members is complicated. The grounds for military divorce are the same as civilian divorce. Like civilian divorce, several issues also need to be discussed and resolved, including child custody, child support, alimony, property division and division of military pensions and other benefits.

However, military divorces can be subject to a multitude of other complex legalities. Strict guidelines must be followed during divorce proceedings, so having an experienced and successful divorce attorney on your side is important.

Child custody and parenting time are emotional issues for parents. When one or both parents are in the military, these issues can be even more complicated. Irregular and long-distance schedules can make custody and visitation matters difficult. We take a creative approach when evaluating all options to find a resolution that fits you and your family’s specific needs.

Domestic Relations Trial Experience

Trial experience is vital. Even if your divorce does not end up in court, our knowledge of domestic relations issues and ability to effectively negotiate and litigate will help us find a resolution that fits your specific needs.
