Miller Law Group is here to walk you through these and other issues. We understand the unique issues and complexities involved in divorce cases involving members of the military, and we are prepared to tackle any challenges you might face with experience and skill.

How Military Divorce Differs from Civilian Divorce

There are a lot of ways that military divorces differ from civilian divorces. There are some unique rules as to jurisdiction; serving military members who are deployed elsewhere; and dividing assets and marital estates—especially military pensions, which are governed by special rules. It is therefore critical that you hire an attorney who understands the unique ways in which military divorces work.

Stalling Divorce Proceedings for Active Duty

If you or your spouse is on active duty in the military, military laws protect cases from commencing without the military spouse being present. This means final divorce orders cannot be entered by default without the military spouse having a say in the matter. While it is not always possible to delay temporary orders, final orders can be stalled until a military spouse is off active duty.

Can I Get a Divorce While Deployed Overseas or If My Spouse Is?

If you are overseas and want a divorce or are married to someone who is deployed in the military, you might be wondering if divorce is possible. A military divorce during deployment can be difficult, and the possibility of obtaining one varies from situation to situation.

Factors that influence a divorce while overseas include:

  • Who is filing for divorce

  • Where the military member is deployed

  • If the military member is protected by the Service Members Civil Relief Act
