Why Military Divorce Is Different
All of the factors that need to be parsed in a civilian divorce also need to be addressed in a military divorce. However, because one or both spouses serve in the military, there are added considerations to this process that must be confronted in order to fairly dissolve the marriage.
These considerations include:
- Where to file: If the spouses are separated due to military service, they must usually file for divorce in the state where the servicemember lives.
- Child Custody: For members of the military, reassignments and deployments could be a significant part of their service. This can make child custody and visitation particularly challenging.
- Military Benefits: Medical and pension benefits provided by the military can be divided during the divorce process. While state laws often address this division, there some considerations that must be made on a case-by-case basis.
- Alimony and Child Support: Military servicemembers are held to high standards when it comes post-divorce financial responsibilities—but many of them also face unique challenges, such as deployment. Calculating income and living expenses is also substantially different for military personnel.
