Military Divorce

Get specialized guidance for the intricacies of division of military retirement and pension

Our attorneys understand the complex demands of military family life and can advocate for you and your children’s needs.

At Garriott Maurer, PLLC, we understand the unique situations of many military families. Some of us have known them, firsthand. We understand the sacrifices that service members and their families make during — and often after — a military career, and we understand the implications of those sacrifices on relationships, finances, and household roles.
