IMPORTANCE OF CONSULTING WITH A MILITARY DIVORCE ATTORNEY

Most marriages in America today last about 11 years. However, that's not the same for military couples. In fact, military couples have a higher divorce rate in general than civilian couples. Some factors that contribute to this number include variables like:

Constant moving from base to base.
Long deployments
Communication issues
Infidelity
PTSD


Regardless of why military couples decide to get divorced in the first place, there are some significant differences in the separation process.

While divorce is rarely simple, there are some issues that take on an extra level of complexity when one spouse serves in the military. Some of these variables include:<>br

  • Schedule - Scheduling a divorce can be difficult. If your spouse serves you with divorce papers while you're deployed, it's obviously impossible for you to answer them. Because of this, federal law allows you to file motions to extend your divorce case until you return to the US.
  • Child custody - This can become difficult when one member is an active duty military member. In some joint custody scenarios, a former spouse can take care of a child when their other parent is deployed. However, an active-duty service member can also designate another family member to provide care for the child, like the child's grandparents. Additionally, the law requires both parents to agree on an alternative guardian if they are both active-duty service members.
  • Division of property - If you receive a military pension, the court cannot force you to split your benefits in your divorce. All other division of property works the same as in a civilian divorce.

For a military family, these laws play a crucial role in how to move on post-divorce. Don't try to understand them alone. Instead, call the Stutz Law Office in the Placer County, CA area. The lawyers at the firm can answer any questions you have regarding the military divorce process. Call today to schedule a free consultation with a military divorce lawyer.
