Rancho Cucamonga Military Divorce Lawyers

Facing a Military Divorce?

No divorce is simple. It is just the nature of the beast. Splitting a union, children, and assets is a complex process and is not only financially trying but emotionally stressful as well.

Should the divorce, however, involve one or two parties who are active members of the military, it can be exponentially more complex than a civilian divorce. Even with the added difficulties of the situation, it is important to realize that you will still be dealing with the same facets of a civilian divorce; property division, custody, child support, and alimony will all still apply and need to be figured out.

How is Military Divorce Different?

The term "military divorce" is actually a layman's term to describe certain situations regarding a divorce. The military will play no part in the actual divorce process, rather, it is a term that describes a divorce involving a military member - active duty, reserve, guard or retired. Regardless, it is important to realize that there will be added complications that will come into play when a divorce involves a military couple.

For example with active servicemen and women, it is impossible for them to be held in "default" should they not respond to a divorce action within the required time-frame. There is also the question of jurisdiction and in which court the divorce should be filed, although typically it will be in the state where the serviceman or woman is stationed.

While state courts will oversee the divorce, it is important to realize that there are three laws that will come into play with a military divorce, the Service Members' Civil Relief Act, the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act and the Hague Convention on Service Abroad of Judicial and Extrajudicial Documents. The military divorce attorney you choose to help you through the divorce process should be familiar with these documents and be able to help explain how they will affect your divorce.
