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 a military divorce include:

  • 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. We use the same legal tactics that you would normally find at a large law firm to defend your rights as a parent and to protect your financial future.
