Massachusetts Military Divorce Lawyers
Members of the military face unique challenges when it comes to divorce. Miller Law Group, P.C. helps the men and women who serve our country—as well as their spouses—deal with divorce. While a degree of stress and uncertainty accompanies any type of divorce, military members and their spouses face additional questions such as:
- What happens if I’m served divorce papers while on active duty?
- Where do I send divorce papers if my husband or wife is on active duty?
- Can custody decisions be made when one parent is overseas or out of state?
- What happens to my military pension?
- Where will my divorce case take place?
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.
