The unique challenges faced by military families require a specialized understanding of both family law and military law, which is why at Ryan Family Law, we are proud to offer comprehensive services to those in the military and their families.
Understanding Military Divorce & Family Law
Military divorce and family law encompasses a range of legal issues that specifically impact the lives of service members and their families, including divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, and property division. This specialized area of law requires a deep understanding of both family law and the military’s regulations and benefits, including the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (USFSPA) and the Service Members Civil Relief Act (SCRA).
Protecting Your Rights as a Service Member
For service members, the unique demands of military life can create additional challenges in the legal process. The Service Members Civil Relief Act provides protections for service members who are deployed or in active duty status, including stays of court proceedings, reduced interest rates on debts, and protection from eviction.
It is important for service members to understand their rights and how they can be protected through the legal process. At Ryan Family Law, we are 100% committed to ensuring that our clients receive the full protection of the law and receive the support they need to navigate the complexities of military family law.

Ryan and his legal team work closely with our clients to ensure that their rights and interests are protected, and that they receive a fair and equitable settlement.

At Ryan Family Law, we understand the unique challenges faced by military families when it comes to child custody and support. Our experienced attorneys work closely with our clients to develop a custody and support plan that takes into account the unique demands of military life, while also protecting the best interests of the children.
