A military divorce may require special maneuvers

The dissolution of a marriage partnership is never an easy undertaking, regardless of the circumstances. However, a military divorce may require special maneuvers when compared to a civilian dissolution. Military families in California may benefit from the guidance of one who is experienced in this specific area of family law.

One of the biggest differences in attempting to obtain a divorce involving service members is the military benefits that are subject to division. While California is a community property state, the laws pertaining to the various service branches are different. Another important consideration is whether one parent is deployed in another country or state. Working out a feasible custody and visitation agreement requires some finesse in order to protect parents' relationships with any minor children.

Moreover, the branch of the military makes a difference, as each has particular guidelines regarding a divorce. Each one addresses child custody, support and the division of assets in its own bylaws. Every family is unique and deserves an individualized approach when a divorce is a foregone conclusion. Military families are no exception; indeed, they may require even more attention to detail since so much is at stake for both parties.

The decision to serve your country or to marry a service member is not one that you undertook without due consideration. When that relationship is no longer viable, it is even more important that all of the issues that are a part of a military divorce are handled with the same diligence. When such a dissolution is being pursued while you are a resident of California, a divorce attorney who is experienced in the workings of the different branches may be an invaluable resource during this often complex process.
