Military couples face unique challenges during divorce

33822350_S.jpgNot all couples in Missouri have straightforward family arrangements. In fact, some may only be based in Missouri for a short while. Others spend months at a time apart, with a lingering worry that one of them may not come home. These are only some of the stresses and pressures facing military families. In some cases it can strengthen the bond between a couple. For others the stress creates tension between them, causing a rift. Others still simply grow apart.

Understanding the difficulties of military divorce

33822187_S.jpgUnfortunately for military couples, military lifestyle can contribute to the likelihood of divorce in some ways. Being apart for months at a time and having to constantly move about as the service spouse is stationed in different parts of the country can put great strain on the relationship. Even more unfortunate for these couples, the complexities of divorce are multiplied by the military lifestyle. This brutal combination can make it very difficult for military couples.

However, according to statistics, the threat may be lessening, as the divorce rate has been in decline since 2011.

My spouse is in the military. How does that affect divorce?

15425959_S.jpgMany people may not consider how being in the military affects divorce proceedings, but rest assured that there are subtle but significant differences in military divorce cases. Not only are there additional military pensions and benefits that divorcing couples must address, there are also rules that affect when and where these divorces can take place. So while the end result of a military divorce may be the same as a civilian divorce, the means to that end can require some additional knowledge.

2433702_S.jpgThere are many additional factors that make military divorce more complex than civilian divorce, such as the Service Members Civil Relief Act and survivor benefit plans. More than just the extra rules and plans, however, there is the possibility that the military serviceman or servicewoman might be deployed and unable to attend court hearings. This more than anything makes military divorce a special case that must be dealt with by experienced professionals who can work with patience and diligence. The stakes in these cases can be extremely high.

The law may dictate how the legal process handles topics ranging from divorce to burglary to copyrights, but these laws must be interpreted, and that interpretation can change. This is one of the main reasons that attorneys are so vital to the litigation process: they make it their business to stay up-to-date on the latest legal precedents all across the country.

21438418_S.jpgMilitary servicemen and servicewomen are modern, everyday heroes. They often find themselves in situations that many of us cannot even imagine.

One of these problems is divorce, which appears to be on the rise, particularly between female servicewomen with non-military male spouses.
