OHio Military Divorce Lawyers

Military personnel and spouses of military personnel who are seeking a divorce or dissolution have unique and complex circumstances and need the assistance of an experienced attorney. In military divorces it is critical to understand the various compensation levels and benefits of the parties.

The Delaware divorce lawyers of the Lawrence Law Office offer our clients more than 20 years of legal experience including military family law issues. They are dedicated to efficiently guiding their clients through the divorce process quickly while protecting their assets. We are familiar with the military benefits structure and know what benefits can be divided and what benefits cannot.

If you have been married for 10 years or longer, you may be eligible for additional benefits, contact Lawrence Law Office today to learn about your rights.

The division of military retirement benefits is complicated and should not be done without the assistance of an attorney. Important aspects that need to be understood include:

  • Cost of living adjustments (COLA)
  • Court Order Acceptable for Processing (COAP)
  • Survivor benefits
  • Promotion structures
  • Value of marital assets

Client Reviews

Had free consultation. Advice given was taken, and resulted in change of mind in the other/opposing party. We therefore did not need to retain. Should opposing party resume original opinion, we will retain.


I was in a terrible custody dispute with my ex. I was very upset and afraid of my ex. Rodd listened to everything I said and remembered everything I said. He was aggressive in court and used the information I gave him very well. We won the case and my ex has backed off.


I wanted an easy divorce from my wife. She wanted a fight. Rodd and I discussed fair terms for a dissolution. Because he was pro active and stayed on top of the case, my wife and I finally reached an agreement and had a dissolution. I highly recommend Rodd.


I hired Linda Lawrence because I have a business and I wanted to protect it in my divorce. Linda is top notch and knows about business finance and assets. I was able to keep my business and not have to pay my wife anything from it. Hire her.


I hired Linda Lawrence because I needed an aggressive attorney. Linda was able to stand up against the other attorney and was very aggressive in court. It was an expensive divorce case, but that was because the other attorney was very aggressive and Linda was very thorough. I had great results in my case and highly recommend Linda.


On Active Duty?

You do not have to be present in Ohio to obtain a divorce. In a dissolution or divorce, both parties are required to appear. However, if you are on active duty you can file for an uncontested divorce. In an uncontested divorce, the parties have to agree on the issues of property division, debt distribution, child custody, spousal support or child support, but both parties do not have to appear before the court for the divorce to be final.
