Military Divorce

Military Divorce Attorney in La Mesa

Serving El Cajon, Lemon Grove & the Surrounding Areas

When it comes to divorce involving a member of the military, it is advised that you seek legal counsel from an experienced La Mesa divorce attorney. I have been providing legal representation to Southern California residents for over 25 years. By combining years of experience with an extensive knowledge of divorce proceedings and family law, I am able to help you navigate through the complexities of military divorce.

Much like a conventional, civilian divorce, the process of a military divorce involves the following steps:

  • The petitioner decides on how to end the marriage (divorce, legal separation, or annulment)
  • Paperwork must be filed by the petitioner
  • The petitioner has someone serve the forms to the spouse, now called "the respondent"
  • The respondent can contest the divorce if he or she so chooses
  • If the respondent does not contest, then the courts can end the marriage
  • If the respondent contests the divorce, then other legal steps must take place
  • Additional legal steps include an exchange of financial documents for the judge's consideration

You deserve quality counsel and compassionate, personalized attention during your divorce. Call my office at (619) 304-8499 to discover how I can help you.

Serving a Spouse on Base, Overseas & Stateside

With a military divorce, the location of one or both spouses can make it difficult to approach a divorce in the first place. If the spouse lives off-base, then the process follows much the same as a civilian divorce. The individual can be served the forms by a person over the age of 18 who is not connected with the case. If the spouse lives on base, a process server or sheriff can serve the papers. In situations where the spouse is stationed overseas, the individual can be served by certified mail with return receipt.

This situation can be difficult to manage, which is why I make my legal services readily available to individuals who are seeking a divorce. As your La Mesa military divorce lawyer, I will work closely with you to make sure your needs and addressed and every detail of your divorce is handled to the letter.

To learn how I can help you with a military divorce, or for any other questions, please give me a call at (619) 304-8499.

I Have Helped

  • Great Attorney in a difficult time

    “I utilized Andrea's legal services to help me resolve a difficult and bitter child visitation dispute. Andrea was able to successfully make in-roads on a new visitation agreement that both parties could support. I am extremely pleased that Andrea was able to resolve my legal matter within the 45-day deadline I put forth. Although I hope not to have to return to court for another family related matter, however if I did, I would strongly consider retaining Andrea services in the future. Andrea is a true professional and will get the "job" done.”
