Advocating for Military Service Members & Civilian Spouses

With over 90 years of combined experience, we have the necessary skill to effectively resolve military divorces for clients in Tennessee and overseas. Our Clarksville military divorce lawyers can develop a customized plan and achieve a solution that puts you and your family first.
We proudly offer affordable rates and manageable payment plans for our military clients. Call (931) 240-2752 to get started.
Helping Clients Understand Their Rights
Military service members and their families are governed by state and federal laws that are designed to protect active-duty military personnel. One example is the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act, which can postpone a divorce through deployment and up to 60 days afterward unless waived by the service member. Another example is the Uniformed Services Former Spouse Protection Act, which is a federal law governing the benefits the former spouse of a service member is eligible to receive. Our seasoned attorneys can navigate the rules and regulations surrounding military divorce to protect the rights of our clients.
Military Divorce in Tennessee
To obtain a divorce in Tennessee, one spouse must live in the state or the service member must be stationed in the state. Property division is dictated under state law as “equitable distribution,” meaning that property is classified as marital or separate. If children are a part of the divorce, no more than 60% of pay and benefits can go toward child support and visitation can be affected by deployments.
