Fort Worth And Burleson Military Divorce Lawyers

Military families face the same stresses as other families, plus the added stresses of being separated for long periods, deployed without warning and attacked by the enemy. Not surprisingly, many military couples, active duty or retired, decide to divorce.

Military divorce occurs in the same court system as civilian divorces, but complicated by the military's unique pay, benefit and retirement systems. For this reason, not many family law firms are able to manage the intricate processes of property division that are part of divorce. One notable exception is the Fort Worth law firm of Lovelace Killen P.L.L.C.
