Coast Guard Divorce

Coast Guard Divorce Lawyer

Support for Military Divorce Cases

If you are facing a family law complication, you may be feeling the pressure of solving the issue quickly. Family law cases can be draining for all parties involved. Stress can run high and emotions may run wild. At Cutter & Lax we understand that it is important to you to swiftly settle your case; which is why we make an individualized approach to each client that we take on. If you are looking to proceed with a divorce to an active duty spouse, the divorce proceedings will be slightly different than a civilian case - which is why it is so important that you work with an experienced and dedicated attorney.

Being married to an active duty Guardian can be a daunting task in itself. If your spouse is stationed on a cutter, they may be at sea for months at a time. Air Station personnel spend long hours on the job and every duty rotation can become a chore for the spouse left behind. Spouses will often relocate a few times every few years and the process of moving can take its toll. If you are looking to divorce from an active duty Coast Guard member, it is important that you leave nothing to chance. With so much at stake, you need to trust Cutter & Lax.
