How Does Military Family Law Differ From Civilian Family Law?
Military family law differs from civilian family law in a number of ways. While the fundamental principles of regular divorce, such as property division, child custody, and spousal support, apply to both civilians and service members, military divorces introduce additional challenges.
For instance, military family law must consider factors like deployment, military pensions, benefits, and housing allowances, which don’t typically apply to a civilian person. The legal process may also need to accommodate the transient nature of military life, including issues related to jurisdiction and residency requirements for filing for divorce.
Additionally, federal laws, such as the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (USFSPA), play a crucial role in how military pensions are divided, a concern usually not present in civilian divorces. These distinctions make it imperative for service members and their spouses to seek guidance from attorneys skilled in military family law to navigate these unique challenges effectively.
