Unique Issues Related to Military Divorce

First and foremost, knowing where to file when you or your spouse are on active duty presents a unique challenge to most military couples. Relocation, especially when it comes to child visitation, can also be incredibly complex and usually requires a higher burden of proof for military families.

In addition, property division, especially of military retirement benefits, needs careful calculations that take into account the number of years you or your spouse has served, how long you were married, and issues related to your spouse’s employability, physical health, and capacity to earn a living in the future.
