Military Divorces: Differences from Civil Divorces & Why You Need a Lawyer

Man reviewing a Divorce Agreement documentAre you currently serving in a branch of the United States military? If you are thinking of divorcing your spouse, take care. You should be aware that there may be some very crucial differences in the way that a military divorce is handled as opposed to a civil divorce.

These are crucial changes that could affect your decision or, at the very least, the outcome of your divorce. It’s an excellent idea to get legal aid and counsel from a team of New Jersey military divorce attorneys before you proceed any further.

What Are the Differences Between a Civil and a Military Divorce?

The first issue may concern just where your divorce will be filed. If you are serving full time in the military, this may be more of an issue than it would if you were a civilian.

The next question will concern how the amount of support that you may either receive or have to pay will be calculated. The United States military tends to have standards in this area that may be different than what you could expect in a civilian court of law.

There may also be different standards as to pension rights and other benefits.
