Family Law Services For Military Service Members

A military service member might face the same family law issues as a civilian, but that doesn’t mean you’ll want to rely on a lawyer who has only worked with civilians. The responsibilities and culture of military life contribute to a distinct set of family law needs that civilians may never face. That’s why it’s important to work with an attorney who has a successful record in military family law.

At Salley & Salley, LLC, we understand the sacrifices made by both service members and their family members. Military service can require frequent moves, extended periods of separation and other stresses on top of the physical danger that often comes with deployment. Like other aspects of the military, injury and death affect not just the service member but also his or her family.
