The additional considerations of a military divorce

Generally speaking, a military divorce is the same as a civilian divorce. However, there are some additional considerations that often come to the forefront. From child custody and relocation to military pensions, there are questions to answer and unique topics to address.

What do you know about the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act, or UCCJEA? This is a big part of a military divorce as it provides guidance for how child custody is determined.

One of the biggest benefits of serving in the military is the retirement package. Thanks to the Uniform Services Former Spouse's Protection Act, or USFSPA, military retirement benefits are considered marital property. For this reason, the benefits may be divided in the event of a divorce.

Finally, your location can have a big impact on your divorce. For example, if you are serving overseas it may alter a child custody decision or how you finalize the divorce process.

If you find yourself faced with a military divorce, it is a good idea to address each and every concern that you can see, as well as those that could come to light in the future.
