Skilled Legal Guidance For Military Families
In most respects, divorce is divorce, whether or not the divorcing spouses are in the military. There are a few special considerations for military service members, however, that should be handled with care and attention to detail.

Attending To All Matters Related To Military Divorce
Our family law firm has represented numerous military families. We are well-versed in the nuances of military divorce and can provide you with the knowledgeable guidance you need for these matters:
Military Child Custody
Military families often relocate, adding a layer of complexity to child custody and visitation issues. If you are stationed overseas or need to relocate to a military installation in another state, we can advise you on how best to maintain your role in your child’s life. We are well-versed in interstate child custody laws and skilled at establishing visitation schedules that fit the unique demands of military life.
Military pensions are subject to unique property and asset division laws that take into account years of service while married and length of marriage. Victoria Hardin aggressively negotiates terms of property division so that the division of retirement pay is fair. When the judge finalizes your marriage settlement, you can be confident that all options have been explored.
Domestic violence issues are especially sensitive for military service members. A conviction will likely mark the end of a military career. As a former prosecutor, Victoria Hardin knows how these cases are handled and knows successful defense strategies she can apply on your behalf. The right approach for a civilian client might be disastrous for a service member, because of the career implications. Because of her experience in family law, criminal law and military issues, Ms. Hardin can protect your rights, your reputation and your career.
