Divorce Advice for the Armed Forces

Long periods of separation and an extremely stressful job can take its toll on the relationships of people and their families in the armed forces. An increasing number of troops complain about troubled marriages and relationships as a result of long and numerous deployments.

As a member of the military personnel, we understand the difficulties of being involved in a family dispute when you are away from home. We can work with you via telephone or email to suit your circumstances and can explain to you what you will need to think about and do if you are service personnel thinking of divorce or separation with regards to family finances, pension and maintenance arrangements or have children disputes.

Chris Myles, Head of our Family Law team, has considerable experience on working on separation and divorce cases. He is supported by a large team of family legal advisors whose experience includes children law, mediation, collaborative law, family finances, pensions and negotiating settlement arrangements.
