Armed Forces Divorce

Our family lawyers have many years of experience in helping Armed Forces personnel. If you are contemplating a divorce or separation then please contact one of our family lawyers who all have a superior understanding of working with Armed Forces personnel and dealing with related issues such as pensions and married quarters.

Dealing with pensions on divorce is a complex area of law and we would suggest that you obtain independent legal advice from a family lawyer at BakerLaw at the earliest opportunity. We can advise you on what options are available and whether it is possible to safeguard your pension.

We understand the busy life of serving members and the fact that you have work commitments that make dealing with these matters difficult. We will do our utmost to make your life easier by taking on the burden. We can correspond by email and telephone and therefore the fact that you may not be local to our offices or be moving around or posted abroad will not prevent us from offering you a quality service in a timely manner.

We also provide legal services to all Armed forces personnel in the following areas:

  • Divorce and Family Law
  • Property buying (including Long Service Advance of Pay) or sale of property
  • Transfer of Equity and Re-mortgaging
  • Probate and Administration of Estate
  • Wills and Inheritance Tax advice
  • Lasting Power of Attorney

For more information please contact us online or by phone on 01252 733770 or 020 7842 0800.
