Differences Between Military & Civilian Divorce
Military divorce can create certain unique issues that are not present in a typical civilian divorce, and both state and federal laws apply. Under the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act, at the discretion of the local court, divorce proceedings may be postponed while a service member is on active duty and up to 60 days thereafter. A service member who wants to get divorced can waive this right.
Under the federal Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act, a couple must have been married for at least 10 years while the service member was on active duty for the service member's spouse to be entitled to any division and distribution of military retirement benefits. Child support and spousal support combined may not exceed 60% of a service member's pay and allowances. Our knowledgeable family law attorney can give you sound legal counsel and dedicated representation in this complex legal matter.
