Military retreats could help reduce divorce

Most people know that stressful jobs can contribute to divorce, but did you know that some people are addressing this issue through retreats for military families? Updated on July 11, 2019, is a story of families who have been strained with the work the military provides.

Get to know more about a military divorce

When you're deployed, the last thing you want to have to worry about is a divorce. Your spouse might have decided to start the process, but you don't have to worry about rulings being made against you while you're away. In fact, military members can ask for a stay while on deployment, so no further court actions will be taken.

The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act protects your rights

Military divorces are similar to typical divorces, but there are a few exceptions in terms of the divorce's timeline and rules. In military divorces, there is a chance that at least one of the two people seeking divorce will be deployed at a distance that makes it impossible or difficult for them to make it to hearings, meetings and to make other necessary steps forward in the divorce.

Military members have support during divorce

If you are approached about getting a divorce and are in the military, you should know that there are support services open to you. As a service member, the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) protects your legal rights when you're on active duty. That means that if you receive divorce documents, you'll have longer to respond.

Residency and going through a military divorce

As you may know, you need to be a resident of a state where you'd like to file for divorce. As a member of the military, that isn't always easy, though. You may not qualify as a resident in the state where you'd like to file for divorce because of moving, which makes it hard to decide where to divorce.

Military couples need to work at their marriages

In Fort Worth, Texas, and Tarrant, Texas, there are many married military couples. The hope is that most of them will stay married, and raise their children together in the most natural way possible, with both parents and the children sharing a home. Unfortunately, military divorce does happen, splitting families apart and ensuring that children don't get to live with both of their parents.
