Military personnel are involved in the same domestic situations as civilians' divorce, separation, custody, support, and division of property. Yet when a divorce action involves a military client, there are special issues that arise which make these cases more difficult.
The Military Divorce Handbook guides you through the complexities of all aspects of representing military personnel or their spouses to help you provide competent and thorough representation for your client.
The handbook includes a glossary, table of cases, and comprehensive index, as well as a CD-ROM with forms and additional background material.
