Military Divorce Attorneys in Charlotte

Trusted Advocates for Service Members & Their Families

Military divorce differs in a few key ways from the standard divorce process. If you or your spouse is a member of the military, it is advantageous to hire an attorney with specific knowledge and experience representing clients in military divorces. At Jetton & Meredith, our military divorce lawyers in Charlotte are familiar with the rights of military members and have helped clients resolve the complex issues associated with these kinds of divorce.*

Call (704) 931-5535 to schedule a consultation with a member of our team.

Military Members’ Rights Regarding Divorce

The Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Act, 50 USC Section 521 is designated to protect members of the military from having divorce actions forced on them while they are on active duty. This law allows divorce proceedings to be postponed for the term of active duty and 60 days after the military member has returned from deployment. A service member in the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marines may waive this right if they wish.

Resolving Complex Issues

In addition to the logistics of filing for divorce during active duty deployment, there are other unique issues that affect members of the military going through a divorce. For example, child custody and visitation are more complex when one parent is on active duty.

Our Charlotte military divorce attorneys help resolve issues such as:

  • Equitable division, including military pension division
  • Modifying custody and visitation schedules when military members return from deployment
  • Veterans’ benefits, including medical care and disability benefits

    We caution military service member and their spouses against engaging in the divorce process without first speaking with a lawyer. Our attorneys can advise you on all aspects of divorce and the unique complexities of military divorce.

    Please call (704) 931-5535 to set up an appointment for a consultation with our firm.
