Experienced Arizona Military Divorce Attorneys
Protect Your Future with a Knowledgeable Lawyer
We often think that coming back from a deployment will be easy—that things will go back to the way they were, with happy families and apple pie. But the truth is that it often does not. Divorce may impact you and your family emotionally, and that problem can be amplified in a military divorce. Time away can change a person. The stress of military duty during wartime can cause relationships to buckle through alcoholism or drug abuse.
With the stress of prolonged and frequent deployments, it’s no wonder that divorce rates among military families are on the rise. Spouses are too busy raising kids or serving on a tour of duty to work on their relationship. Some soldiers come back with post-traumatic stress disorder. During the prolonged separation, one spouse or the other may have been unfaithful.
If your marriage is falling apart, get a free case evaluation from an experienced Arizona military divorce attorney. At the law office of Steven N. Cole, we will advise you of the best legal options available to you. If your spouse was unfaithful, we will fight vigorously during the divorce process to protect your assets and your relationship with your children. If you and your spouse want to part on friendly terms, we can help you negotiate an uncontested divorce.

While military divorces have much in common with standard divorces, there are additional considerations to make:
- Military pensions need to be considered during property and debt division
- There are some federal laws related to military divorces, such as the Service Members Civil Relief Act (SCRA), the Soldiers & Sailors Civil Relief Act (SSCRA), and the Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act (USFSPA)
- Child custody and visitation rights can be more complicated if a service member is deployed
- Grandparents may want to protect their right to see their grandchildren if one spouse is deployed
