Supporting Our Clients
We provide experienced and knowledgeable representation for clients involved in a divorce or separation. To file for divorce, a couple must be separated for one year; as soon as the couple is separated, a spouse can request orders for many divorce-related issues. We help men and women resolve family law matters involved in divorce, including:
- Contested and uncontested divorce
- Separation agreements
- Child custody and visitation
- Property division
- Spousal support (alimony)
- Domestic violence
Military divorces involve unique circumstances and some unique laws. With more than 30 years of experience and as a retired military officer, attorney Roger Compton can help members of the military and their spouses during a divorce.
Spouses of military members have a property interest in their military spouses’ retirement accounts. There is no 10-year marriage requirement to have this interest. In fact, spouses do not have to be married for any significant length of time in order to have a property interest in the retirement account.
When one or both parents are in the military, child custody disputes become more complicated. Our firm has the knowledge and experience to competently resolve your issues, no matter how complex.
