How to Deal with A Military Divorce

Are you in the military? Is your spouse in the process of serving the country? If you answered yes to either question, you know that it can put a lot of stress on your marriage.

Unfortunately, the stress and time away from home can lead to a divorce. Unlike a traditional divorce, there are some unique challenges associated with military divorce.

You must know what this process entails, as well as how it will change your life now and in the future. This includes a variety of details, such as:

–Sharing of retirement benefits. As a spouse of a military member, you may be entitled to a marital share of retirement benefits, such as the person’s pension. This is governed by the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act.

Child custody. Due to the many issues regarding active duty and deployment, matters of child custody and visitation can be complex.

— Child support. Income can and will vary for military members, as pay is not the same while serving on base and during deployment.

It doesn’t matter if you are a service member or a spouse, if you are faced with a military divorce you don’t want to lose sight of the big picture.
