Military Divorce


Going through a divorce can be one of the most emotionally trying times in a person’s life—even more so when one or both spouses have the additional stress of military service. And while you may have heard that North Carolina has a no-fault divorce option, military spouses who are seeking a dissolution of marriage have to adhere to an additional set of regulations that do not apply to civilian divorces. The Southern Pines Foyle Law Firm represents members of the armed forces in their divorce actions. Our staff of family law and divorce lawyers have the knowledge and experience necessary to oversee even the most contentious military divorces. Located in Moore County, the Foyles Law Firm office is ideally situated to serve the military personnel stationed at Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base.

Military Divorce Attorneys of NC

In order for an attorney to petition for divorce on behalf of a client in North Carolina, the plaintiff or the defendant must have been domiciled in the state for a period of six months. Because military members are subject to deployments and transfers, North Carolina law allows for exceptions for military members. In addition to North Carolina’s residency requirement, there are a number of legal conditions that must be met to serve an active duty member of the military with divorce papers. The family law attorneys of Foyles Law Firm of Moore County have extensive military divorce experience. They are familiar with all of the aspects of dissolution of marriage and divorce that affect both service members and civilians alike, including:

  • Divorce
  • Child Custody/Time Sharing
  • Visitation
  • Support
  • Asset Division
  • Pension Division
  • Paternity
  • Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreements
