Major in the U.S. Army Reserve

Hear from Attorney Dennis M. Slate

I am a Major in the U.S. Army Reserve. I am exceptionally proud to offer my legal services to fellow soldiers in all forms of military divorce, from simple to the most complex. The issues that members of the military must deal with in divorce are far more difficult than in civilian life. At Our firm, Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, you can expect high quality representation from a lawyer who is extremely skilled in both state and military law.

State Law and Military Law Come Into Play

Your future financial health and issues related to your children, as well as the division of assets, are impacted by Texas law and the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act. The USFSPA affects all members of the military who are getting divorced, and outlines the rules with regard to the split of retirement benefits. How the split will work will be based upon the duration of the marriage.

You don't need the added stress of a divorce. Get a U.S. Army reserve officer fighting for you.

There is a massive stress involved in serving for the country. The challenges that members of the military face on a daily basis is rarely understood by those who have not "been there." Issues regarding deployment and being far from your loved ones for months or longer, the rigorous duties, training and actual combat can all take a toll. Add divorce to the mix, and it can be extremely uncomfortable. At our firm, I fully understand what the military goes through, and I have 25 years in service as an officer to back that up. Call upon my firm to help you. I will manage every detail for you, and fight for you as hard as I did for my country.

If you need representation for a military divorce, I urge you to get in touch with me at Our firm at once. We can discuss your situation, and I can advise you about your rights, and what I will do to protect them. It is important that you have a true legal professional in your corner in a military divorce. All of the issues must be resolved fairly, and I make sure that my military clients do not sacrifice unnecessarily.
