Filing Locations for Military Divorce in Monmouth County

Serving in the United States armed services is an honorable but also very challenging venture. Unfortunately, serving in the military often takes a toll on one’s personal life. In fact, military service sometimes conflicts so much with one’s marriage that divorce is the best answer for all involved.

As such, it is important to know that military divorce is handled differently than civilian divorce, and members of the armed services must know the differences. The attorneys of Law Office of Andrew A. Bestafka, Esq. are here to help Monmouth County armed services members go through the divorce process as painlessly as possible, and help them move toward a new life.

Regulations for Military Divorce

Sometimes military divorces can be more tedious than civilian divorces because of the different regulations involved. One of the most important aspects of filing a military divorce is knowing where to file. There are three options:

  • In the state where the armed service member resides
  • In the state where the armed service member is stationed
  • In the state where the armed service member is listed as a resident

This is only one of many important decisions to make when filing a military divorce, so it is wise to seek legal counsel in Monmouth County when navigating the challenges of military divorce.
