Advising Military Personnel And Spouses Through Divorce

Unlike civilians, military personnel and their spouses are subject to distinct divorce issues. At The Law Office of Steven M. Bishop, we recognize these issues and find creative ways to solve them. We skillfully represent military personnel and their wives or husbands as they file for divorce in California.

Why Are Military Divorces Special?

Serving the country is not simply an ordinary job; it is a life commitment. Military personnel — overseas or otherwise — know that they must follow rules and procedures that can also impact their family. They also face special circumstances in divorce, including military alimony and spousal support restrictions, division of pensions and child custody determinations.

We can work with you to abide by these specific laws while protecting your interests during the divorce. As a board-certified specialist, Mr. Bishop has a firm understanding of the regulations that apply in these cases.

How Do Military Parents Handle Child Custody And Parenting Time?

Whether you or your spouse serves in the military, you may have several unique concerns about the custody of your child. Active duty and military deployment can particularly impact child care opportunities. We are ready to advocate for your needs in child custody proceedings.

Parents should be flexible and attempt to negotiate their parenting plan with their child's best interests at heart — especially when one parent may be away from home for weeks or months at a time. When negotiation is not effective, however, our experienced lawyer can stand up for your parenting time in court.
