Military Divorce – Understanding The Differences
While it is true that most elements of this specific kind of divorce are
the same as regular marriage dissolution, it is crucial to understand
the few differences involved in a military divorce.
Additional considerations to military divorce:
Military pensions need to be considered during
property and debt division
- There are some federal laws related to military divorces, such as the Service
Members Civil Relief Act (SCRA), the Soldiers & Sailors Civil Relief
Act (SSCRA), and the Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act (USFSPA)
Child custody and visitation rights can be more complicated if a service member is deployed
- Grandparents may want to protect their right to see their grandchildren
if one spouse is deployed
It is also important to know that child support may not exceed 60% of a
military member's pay and allowances. When facing military divorce,
you need the representation on your side that has handled these issues
in the past and can achieve results for you. We use the same legal tactics
that you would normally find at a large law firm to defend your rights
as a parent and protect your financial future.
