Tampa Military Divorce Lawyers
Any attorney that is going to mediate or handle military divorce cases must understand all of the unique issues that frequently arise in these cases. They also have to understand relocation, military pay, military benefits, military retirement, and military life. They have to understand the sacrifices made not only by the military servicemember, but also by their spouses and families. An attorney lacking in this perspective will not be ready for a military divorce trial.
