Military Divorces

As if divorces weren’t complicated enough, factoring in military service makes them even more stressful. Divorces between military couples often require more extensive efforts to resolve. There are both federal and state laws that impact military divorces: Federal laws govern the location where the divorce will be handled in court and the division of military pensions, while state laws govern the issuance of alimony and spousal support.

To ensure that service members can focus on defending the country, the US government implemented the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA). The SCRA is in place to prevent those serving from being sued and beginning divorce proceedings while they are on active duty or for 60 days after their active duty.
