Divorce is a very complicated legal process, but military divorce is a completely different challenge. If you or your spouse is a member of the armed forces and you are considering a divorce, keep in mind that there are some different rules that apply to your situation.
For instance, the United States government gives special treatment to soldiers. Military members can delay the divorce process and can be given a lawyer for free to represent them. These special treatments stem from the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act. The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act is designed to give servicemembers a break from some of the legal hassles they might face.
In the divorce situation, most cases take a servicemember’s military pension and split it equally between the two parties. However, this is not always the case, like in regular divorce cases. In the private sector, the court uses the Qualified Domestic Relations Orders as a guide in how to split pensions and retirement funds.
Another important difference is how the court deals with alimony and child support. The amount of money available is usually unclear due to the special guidelines on how much service members are making as an income. Collecting this money can be a complicated affair for the spouse outside of the military.
