Compared to a civilian divorce, a military divorce has several unique issues including jurisdiction, distribution of property and alimony/spousal support payments. In order for the court to have jurisdiction over a military divorce, a member of the U.S. armed services or his or her spouse must either reside in the state or currently be stationed in that state. Additionally, there are laws in place to protect active duty members from “defaulting” on divorce proceedings if their status as a member of the military precludes their attendance at court hearings. Finally, the laws regarding military divorces differ from a civilian divorce as it relates to retirement funds, distribution of property and alimony/spousal support payments for military members. Hodges Trial Lawyers have the knowledge to handle military divorces whether you are the military member or the spouse of a military member.
