South Jersey Military Divorce Lawyer Who Understands The Law, The Military And Divorce – Serving Clients In Burlington, Camden, Gloucester And Cumberland Counties In New Jersey

Being in the military is a unique experience that is unlike most civilian jobs. The legal issues involved in military divorce and child custody are also unique. Many law firms say that they understand the military and military divorce. But, do they, really?

A Divorce Attorney With Military Experience

I am Stephen R. Piper, an experienced family law attorney with 23 years of military experience. I spent seven years of active duty in the U.S. Navy prior to transitioning to the U.S. Air Force Reserve in 2001. I deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa and South America. I flew more than 170 combat missions as a pilot in the H60 and the C130. I retired in 2013 as a lieutenant colonel.

A Lawyer Experienced In Military Divorce

I have more than 18 years of experience as a trial attorney. After my second deployment to Iraq ended in 2006, I began representing fellow Iraq and Afghanistan veterans in their divorces. Since then, I have represented hundreds of military members or their spouses from every military branch – both active duty and the Reserve/National Guard.

A Military Man Who Went Through A Divorce

I have experienced what military families experience. I know what military pay, allowances, retirement and benefits are supposed to look like. You won’t need to explain the military to me. More importantly, when I was on active duty, I went through a divorce. I know how the stress from military divorce can affect you, your relationship with your command and your children.

Reasonable Fees And Payment Plans For Military Families

I understand that military families do not have a lot of extra money. For these families, I try to keep fees reasonable and offer different kinds of payment plans. My law firm offers a military discount to all members of the military and veterans.

The Experience You Need

When choosing your divorce lawyer, compare their military divorce experience, military experience and price. No divorce lawyer can match my combined experience in all three areas.

Divorce Is Not A Do-It-Yourself Project

Military divorce is complicated. Please do not be tempted to save money by choosing a do-it-yourself-divorce option. Far too often, clients have hired me to fix problems created by the use of a DIY divorce. In the end, these clients paid more than they would have if they had hired an attorney to handle the divorce in the beginning. Please don’t do it yourself without first speaking to an experienced military divorce lawyer.
