Military Divorce

Military Divorce Attorneys in Melbourne, Florida

Any divorce is stressful, confusing and emotionally draining, but military divorce in particular creates separately unique and sometimes complex issues. There are many things to consider in a military divorce, such as military pensions, child custody, and spousal support due to the inability of the civilian spouse to gain employment due to frequent relocation. There are also laws that protect service members, so it’s important to call an experienced divorce lawyer like the attorneys at Figueroa Law Group, PA.

Proceedings, Relocation, Pensions & Support

Federal and state laws have been enacted to protect active duty military. Divorce proceedings can be postponed for the entirety of a service member’s deployment. This may be frustrating for one or both of the parties involved, but these laws ensure the divorce is not finalized without the military member’s knowledge. Additionally, active duty military members must be served with a summons, or, in an uncontested divorce, the military spouse must sign a waiver recognizing the divorce.

Due to frequent relocation, the parties may not know where to file. It’s common for military couples to get married in one state, own property in another, and to have moved to several other states during the course of their marriage. The divorce attorneys at the Figueroa Law Group, PA will assist in determining which states have jurisdiction over the divorce along with which state is the best to file in. Since state divorce laws vary, there are many factors to consider, like the division of assets, military pensions, child support and custody, and spousal support. These factors also are weighed and considered differently in a military divorce.
