The Military Divorce Handbook
Mark Sullivan

Product Code 5130135

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.

To order today, call the ABA Service Center at 800-285-2221 and request Product Code 5130135 or order online.
