Military divorce is the same as any other divorce in most ways. The Uniformed Services Former Spouse’s Protection Act is a federal statute for the military guiding them to accept state statues for divorce. Issues such as child support, spousal support and division of assets will be governed by Virginia law if you are filing for a divorce in Virginia.
There are additional factors that could affect your military divorce. For example, if you or your spouse is on active duty and stationed remotely or overseas, the process could take longer. Your states residency requirements could become a factor, depending on where you or your spouse are stationed. An attorney with military divorce experience will help you sort through these issues.
