What You Should Know About Military Divorce

Military divorces differ from civilian divorces in a few ways. If you or your spouse is an active military member and you are seeking divorce, here are a few important points to know.

The state in which you file for divorce can be the state where you reside or the state where the military member is stationed. Military members can choose to delay a divorce until they are no longer on active duty.

When dividing property, military pensions are considered. The military member's retirement funds are often divided between the parties as other accounts and assets would be. On top of that, it may be possible to receive alimony before the divorce itself. With so many rules specific to military divorces, you will want a skilled attorney who has handled these situations before.
