The Military Divorce Handbook
by Mark E. Sullivan
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 service members 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 Service members 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 service members.
Mark E. Sullivan provides numerous Practice Tips throughout the text to make your practice easier and more efficient. Relevant appendices are included in the book and on an accompanying CD-ROM. 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.
