Military Clients

When one spouse is in the military (or when both are), divorce gets a bit more complicated. There are different rules about where to file the divorce, how to calculate child and spousal support, how custody of children is determined, division of retirement, post-divorce health insurance issues, and other military benefits. Service member spouses and civilian spouses alike should take the time to learn about the special issues involved in military divorce.

Military divorce and separation issues are fairly complex because they may be governed by a combination of military codes, state divorce laws and Federal statutes. For example, military laws and Federal statutes will determine the division and/or distribution of military retirement pay, military health insurance, and other military benefits.

In contrast, the laws of the state in which the divorce proceeding is properly filed will govern how the divorce proceeds and how most of the divorce-related issues are decided, including child custody and visitation, child support, alimony and the division of certain property and debts.
