Houston Military Divorce Lawyer

Divorce for Active and Retired Military Personnel in Texas

If either or both spouses contemplating divorce are on active military duty, the case is likely to present complications on issues ranging from child support to whether the case can be filed in a Texas court.

To learn how current or former military status can affect your rights and responsibilities in a Texas divorce case, contact a Houston military divorce attorney at the Law Offices of Wendy Wood. We maintain offices in Houston and Bryan, and we're ready to advise and represent military personnel and their spouses who have been stationed at Fort Hood, Randolph Air Force Base, Fort Sam Houston, Brooke Army Medical Center or any other installation in Texas.

How Past or Current Military Status Can Affect Your Rights

We have an understanding of the jurisdictional laws relevant to determining whether a Texas family court is able to hear your divorce case, a decision that may turn on the military person's home of record or on where you have been living, be it overseas or on a Texas military base.

We will use our knowledge to help achieve the forum that is best suited to your goals.
