Ex-spouse shares her experience with a military divorce

Those who are married to a military member often endure many changes in their lives as well as the sacrifices that come with deployments and relocation. This may make a military marriage more difficult than a civilian union. Furthermore, obtaining a military divorce when the relationship is no longer sustainable may require more effort than a non-military dissolution. California residents who are contemplating a divorce may benefit from the assistance of a professional who is knowledgeable about military procedures.

Recently, one former military spouse shared her experience after several years of marriage and a subsequent divorce. When asked what she wanted others to learn from her story, she encouraged other spouses to ensure that they work to obtain their own financial well-being. She lamented that she had not made retirement plans of her own, as she had simply relied on her former spouse's plans.

She further suggested that spouses carefully evaluate whether a marriage is salvageable before one seeks to file for a divorce. Once it is determined that a marriage is over, it may be most beneficial to seek the guidance of professionals who are familiar with the procedures that apply to these divorces. Likewise, she urged former spouses to investigate all of the benefits that may be available, including access to base facilities such as the commissary and medical offices.

This former wife does not regret being married to a service member nor does she regret her military divorce. She encourages others who are going through the process to avoid animosity as much as possible by maintaining a positive outlook that life will be happier once the final decree is issued. California residents may be best served in arriving at the optimal settlement agreement by choosing a family law attorney who is well-versed in military divorce regulations.
