Chesterfield Military Child Custody Lawyer

Military Divorce Attorneys Serving Clients Since 1978

Military divorce presents a multitude of complex issues that are not present in most civilian divorces. Divorce lawyers who are unfamiliar with military law and military family law may miss the significance of critical issues, such as military retirement benefits or child custody concerns when a parent is subject to reassignment or relocation.

A Virginia military family law attorney from Barnes & Diehl, P.C., is a valuable source of information and assistance for parents seeking a divorce in Virginia where one or both spouses has served in the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard or other armed forces. From our offices in Richmond/Chesterfield, Henrico or Hanover, our military child custody attorneys are accustomed to representing service members and military spouses who are in Virginia or who are stationed out of state or overseas.
