Virginia Beach Military Divorce Lawyer Reserve JAG

Targeting Fair Results in Matters Concerning Your Military Family

Military service, especially during wartime, is very tough on married couples and families. Long deployments and sporadic contact can push people apart, certainly, and the effort you put into the relationship may not be enough to keep it together.

There are many myths and partial truths surrounding military divorce. At our law firm, you can explore your concerns and get straight answers from former Navy JAG officer and veteran lawyer Scott Hallauer. Our legal team welcomes clients on active duty or retired from all branches of U.S. military service — Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Guard, reserves and more — as well as military spouses facing family law challenges. Our work for you can begin with a free consultation in person, by telephone or via e-mail.

Most of the central concerns of military couples and families are the same as those of civilians, and we are adept at addressing issues such as:

  • Grounds for divorce and "no-fault" grounds allowable with a six- or 12-month period of separation
