Arizona Military Divorce Lawyers
Military Divorce in Arizona
The Arizona divorce laws are not different for people in the military seeking a divorce in Arizona. However, there are a separate set of guidelines which need to be followed in the case of a spouse who is either deployed or relocated. Therefore, Military Divorces can be much more complicated to handle than a regular dissolution of marriage in Arizona. Additionally, the relocation of a military member (or deployment of a military member), does not stop divorce proceedings, though they can be delayed. Consulting with an Arizona Military Divorce Lawyer will help to clarify the issues that you may have when seeking a military divorce in Arizona.
