About The Military Divorce Handbook

Now completely revised and expanded, the new edition of The Military Divorce Handbook is a timely and much-needed addition to a family lawyer's library. Both comprehensive and practical, it covers all aspects of representing servicemembers and their spouses in divorce in an accessible, easy-to-use format.

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. Key chapters explain the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA), military tax issues, and the important issue of dividing military retirement benefits. Also, covered are the difficult and increasingly important issues of custody and domestic violence involving servicemembers.

Explaining complex issues in clear, current and concise language, Mark E. Sullivan provides numerous Practice Tips throughout the text to make your practice easier and more efficient. Relevant appendices are included at the end of the chapter, and are also included on an accompanying CD-ROM. The handbook also includes a glossary, table of cases, and comprehensive index.

Five years after the first edition, this book continues to be a pertinent resource and a helpful legal guide for attorneys handling family law cases in the military context. The hands-on knowledge contained in this accessible handbook is essential for family law practitioners so they can provide professional representation for their client, whether servicemember or spouse.

What Others are Saying...

"As Americans who care about this special generation of warriors who have given so much for so long, we must be mindful of the need to help those facing divorce find the path to the good, whole lives they deserve. The Military Divorce Handbook: A Practical Guide to Representing Military Personnel and Their Families is the best single resource you will find to guide you to a better understanding of the unique issues involved in military divorces. Now in its second edition, author Mark Sullivans seminal treatment of the subject is a one-of-a-kind reference that clearly explains every aspect of military divorce law, demystifying the subject for civilian practitioners and providing a quick reference to the right answers and forms for all attorneys."
