Monmouth County Military Divorce Lawyers
Members of America’s armed forces face a number of unique challenges in their lives. One of the most challenging aspects of serving in the military is balancing a family life and accommodating a family’s needs with the duty owed to one’s country. In fact, nearly every aspect of family relations can be affected by military service, including divorce. Unfortunately, the nature of military service can also make divorce proceedings even more complicated for those involved than other types of divorce. For this reason, qualified legal counsel is particularly important in cases of military divorce.

Filing for Military Divorce
A number of special factors must be considered when it comes to divorce for military service members, but one of the most important aspects is choosing where to file for divorce. For those in the military, the choices may include:
- Filing in the state where the individual resides
- Filing in the state where the service member is stationed
- Filing in the state where the military member is legally listed as a resident
You, as a uniformed member, likely have a number of concerns regarding your future and divorce, such as what to do with any divorce papers you may have been served or you retirement pay. When it comes to issues such as these, the Uniformed Services Former Spouse Protection Act provides certain protections for military members.
