Military marriages are difficult. Couples must often spend significant time apart, often with one partner out of the state or out of the country. The added stress and tough circumstances surrounding military marriages can lead to divorce.
Military divorces involve many of the same issues ordinary citizens must address. These include the division of marital property, whether alimony or child support is necessary, and what custody or visitation arrangements are appropriate. Military divorces, however, also involve many additional complicated issues that require the help of an experienced attorney.
The Pensacola military divorce attorneys at Staples, Ellis + Associates, PA, have nearly 40 years of experience guiding individuals through the complex military divorce process. We give all of our clients the attention their case needs and emphasize protecting their rights throughout the entire proceeding.

Military Pensions and the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act
Military retirement accounts are considered marital property and are subject to division by the court. We will help you understand exactly how these funds might be distributed among you and your partner.
Additionally, servicemen and servicewomen might prefer to participate in the proceedings, rather than handle all documents electronically. If you are on active duty, the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act could allow you to postpone your divorce proceedings until you are able to come back home.
