Resolving Conflicts That Arise During A Military Divorce

When service members marry civilians, their spouses also commit to the armed forces. The government recognizes that partnership requires sacrifices and offers generous military benefits as a result. As members of this special community, military spouses are tasked with additional duties that civilians do not bear, including ensuring stability at home when their partners are deployed.

During a military divorce, these benefits and custody considerations can add a layer of complexity to the divorce process. Whether you are a service member or a military spouse, you should not pursue legal action without professional help. Representing yourself in these matters can put your family's welfare at risk.
