Ready to Handle All Aspects of a Military Divorce

Since 1982, the Law Offices of Michael Kevin Murphy, PLLC has represented active duty and retired service members and their spouses in military divorce actions in Northern Virginia. Military divorce follows the same process as a civil divorce but has added complexities due to the service obligations of the parties and the military benefits that must be taken into account. The firm handles all aspects of divorce, including child support, custody and visitation, spousal support, and division of property including retirement and survivor benefits. We manage contested and uncontested divorces, using traditional negotiation, mediation, collaborative team divorce, and courtroom litigation. Because of our longtime association with the United States military, we understand the special challenges of service members and their spouses, as well as the special requirements for military asset division in divorces.
