Montgomery Military Divorce Lawyers

Protecting Your Rights in Military Divorce

Divorce is complicated enough when both parents are available to meet and discuss the situation. However, if one spouse is in the military and serving out-of-state, it can be more challenging to resolve divorce matters. There are additional elements — such as jurisdictional issues and retirement benefits — that must be addressed by an experienced military divorce lawyer.

At Blanchard Law Offices, we have many years of experience representing clients throughout Montgomery, Alabama, and the surrounding communities in military divorce matters. We also work with clients who are stationed at Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base, Fort McClellan and Fort Rucker, or those who are serving overseas. Contact our firm online or call 334-328-3422 to schedule your initial consultation.

Representation for Overseas Service Members

If you or your spouse is serving abroad, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan or Korea, you can still move forward with divorce proceedings. Many uncontested divorces can be resolved without the service member returning to Alabama.

Servicemembers Civil Relief Act

The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) of 2003 replaced the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act of 1940. The act was designed to give military personnel relief from the stress of civil litigation while they were focused on their mission. The SCRA gives service members and their families protections in a variety of civil procedures, including foreclosure, repossession and divorce. The SCRA affects every aspect of Alabama military divorces, including:

Although the SCRA offers service members relief in a variety of family law situations, it does not offer total protection. For example, although child support payments are temporarily suspended, they continue to accumulate. We offer clients the representation they need to help ensure their rights are protected throughout their military divorce.
