Similarities And Differences Between Civilian And Military Divorce

While there are many similarities between civilian and military divorce – such as property division, child custody and spousal support – there are also some key differences. In a military divorce, some of the major concerns include:

  • Division of military pensions and retirement accounts: Military pensions, deemed marital property, are subject to division in divorce proceedings according to the rules outlined in the Uniformed Services Former Spouse Protection Act.
  • Deployment: The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) safeguards deployed service members by permitting them to postpone the divorce process if required.
  • Jurisdiction: In some cases, the state where the service member is stationed may have jurisdiction, even if the couple no longer resides there.
