unique legal needs when it comes to domestic law issues such as divorce,

Air Force or Coast Guard and want to determine if family law mediation

Active Duty Military Members And The Issues They May Face
Male and female service members go through the same type of domestic law
issues civilians go through. These can include, but are not limited to:
Child support (including modification)
Child custody (including modification)
Spousal support (including modification)
Division of marital assets
Division of marital debt
Benefits Of Family Law Mediation
As with civilian family law issues these matters can be death with via
mediation vs. traditional divorce, child custody or child support litigation.
Mediation is significantly more cost effective, much less taxing emotionally
and less complicated. If children are involved there are even more benefits
as the emotional and psychological toll traditional divorce takes on children
can haunt them for years.
Service Members Civil Relief Act
The Service Members Civil Relief Act prohibits certain civil lawsuits from
proceeding while the service member is deployed. This act affords the
service member protection regarding child support, spousal support and
divorce proceedings, while they are serving their country during a deployment
or are on temporary duty away from their family.
In the event that you, the service member, were never married to the other
parent, are divorced or separated you should consult with a civilian attorney
before you go away on tour to address any custody matters or previously
entered orders. The SCRA does not always protect active duty military
members who are deployed if appropriate child custody matters have not
been dealt with prior to the deployment.
As being an active duty military member presents unique situations and
scenarios you should speak with an experienced family law attorney who
handles military family law issues to discuss how to protect your rights,
your interests and your family.
