Military Divorces

Military divorce for Ohio residentSince 9/11, more and more citizens are entering the military in order to serve their country.  As in all professions and as in all walks of life, the contemplation of a divorce is always possible.

A military divorce poses significant issues not encountered in a civilian divorce atmosphere.  For example, does the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act apply?  Can a person serving in the military be subject to a civil divorce action?  How or when does a military pension become marital property subject to division by the Court?  What military allowances are and are not subject to consideration by the Court when determining child support and/or spousal support?  What special needs are required in addressing the custody and visitation rights of a person serving our country outside the borders of the United States?

These are all issues that need to be addressed when a person is either in the military or seeking a divorce from a person who is serving in the military.  These are complicated issues that should be addressed by an attorney who is specialized in the military aspects of a domestic relations matter.
