Military Divorce And Family Law: Issues, Challenges And Opportunities

Special Considerations For Military Members And Spouses Preparing For Divorce Or Seeking Modifications Of Child Custody Orders

Military couples often face unique factors in divorce for a number of reasons:

  • The military member may be deployed often, creating distance and communication gaps. Especially if the military spouse approaching divorce is on a mission at sea or abroad, getting through the legal requirements for a divorce can be challenging.
  • Each branch of the military (air force, army, navy and marines) has specific rules and issues pertaining to divorce and family law matters. A military spouse may be allowed to take longer to respond to child-related petitions, for example.
  • The potential loss of benefits for the nonmilitary spouse can be significant. Accounting for a wife's or husband's need for health insurance after a divorce can be a major ticket item in divorce settlement negotiations.
  • Division of an anticipated military pension in a divorce is often a significant concern, and rightly so. Each party to a divorce wants and deserves reassurance of a fair portion of retirement assets.

Other aspects of a military divorce, such as property division, spousal support, child custody and support of minor children, may be the same as in an ordinary civilian divorce. Working with an experienced, well-respected lawyer can offer reassurance that every key issue will be addressed efficiently and thoroughly.
