Active military deployments are incredibly stressful on service members serving in combat zones and in combat missions. The last thing any of them need is to battle with spouses over divorce issues such as child custody, spousal or child support and property division. Fortunately, the military and Congress understand the problem and are doing what they can to ease the burden.
With Fort Campbell just over the border in Kentucky, many military personnel living in Tennessee have endured years of deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. Time abroad often means personal sacrifices, and a marriage or relationship, especially one involving children, often cannot survive the strain. When divorce becomes the answer and one or both spouses decide to split, they face all of the usual issues that nonmilitary couples face but with the added pressure of military service. Both federal and Tennessee laws are helping these military families resolve their legal disputes as easily as possible given the circumstances.
Anyone who wants to learn more about the various laws and policies that govern military family law can read some of the older blog posts at The Law Office of Steven C. Girsky. The knowledge presented there can help someone not only resolve current issues but also prepare for the types of situations that often arise after divorce.
The knowledge gained by reading these blogs, however, can only go so far. Divorce in Tennessee involves the particular interests of each individual couple and thus requires the submission of specific information and arguments to a judge who must make decisions based on the best interests of those involved, especially children.
The attorneys at the Law Office of Steven C. Girsky are aware of these needs and can help their clients face these challenges in ways that protect their clients’ rights and interests. People can visit our military divorce webpage for more information about military divorce and its challenges.
