Military Divorce Archives

Statistics show officers more likely to divorce

24447210_L.jpgMany servicemen and servicewomen know the marital strain that comes from being in the armed forces; being deployed and separated from your spouse can be extremely difficult, and some under the pressure. But time spent apart is only part of the picture when it comes to military divorce. A recent analysis collected divorce data from 2013 fiscal in an effort to show which jobs had the highest divorce rates, and perhaps discover why.

Ohio case shows how the law can change

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for 17688049_S.jpgA most important aspect to remember about the law is that it is never set in stone. 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.

Military divorce rates climb for female servicewomen

21438418_S.jpgMilitary servicemen and servicewomen are modern, everyday heroes. They often find themselves in situations that many of us cannot even imagine. But as great and admirable as these men and women are, they are still human beings, and they still have to deal with human problems. One of these problems is divorce, which appears to be on the rise, particularly between female servicewomen with non-military male spouses.

Why you should seek legal advice for your military divorce

17802585_S.jpgThe questions facing military couples when it comes to divorce can vary from those that other couples need to consider. There are matters such as military benefits to consider in addition to rules surrounding property division. If there are children involved, a child custody arrangement needs to be reached that takes into account the military parent's time away from home. Couples in Missouri considering a military divorce have all of these matters to consider.

For some military couples, counseling helps

10065453_S.jpgLife in the military has its ups and downs, and as a couple there are more demands than that of a typical marriage. There are long periods of deployment and hours of training that cause many stresses on a relationship. Spouses have admitted to choosing to be distant and using their frustrations as an outlet and as a means of resolution. With military divorce on the rise, counselors are doing what they can to help rebuild the broken bond.

Military vets often face financial struggles

9583237_S.jpgIt goes without saying that members of the military are often faced with stressful circumstances.  This is especially true of those service members on active duty and stationed overseas.  The possibility of a divorce generally will not help out their situation.

Women deployed much more likely to divorce than male counterpart

17339886_S.jpgMissouri readers may be interested to know that the divorce rate for women in the U.S. military is more than twice that of men.  Though the divorce rate for female military members has decreased these past two years, it reached an all-time high in 2011 of eight percent.  The divorce rate for men in the military has remained at 2.9 percent for a number of years.
