Where should a military member file for divorce?

Your military service likely means you have been transferred from post to post, and you might not have any real roots where you're stationed. California, for example, might just be your temporary home or a stop on your way to another assignment, and you've left your family behind in another state so your spouse can keep their job and your kids can stay in the same school.

Is a divorce a sign of failure?

For military members and their families, the strain of being apart sometimes leads to divorce. That doesn't always have to mean that the marriage was a failure, though. In fact, therapists have agreed that separating and divorcing isn't always a sign of failure at all. It can sometimes mean that the marriage was actually a success.

Know your rights during a military divorce

It is not easy being the spouse who calls off your marriage, and it's equally difficult when you're in the military. Maybe it's your spouse who followed you across the country or who supported you through injuries; despite that, you just don't want the marriage to continue.

Fatherlessness is a problem to recognize in America

Get the help you need with your military divorce

Should you fight for retirement, spousal support and custody?

There are three things that are normally important to military people going through a divorce: children, money and retirement. Attorneys often tell the people involved in these military divorces to choose what is most important to them. By focusing on what's most important, you can, at the very least, fight for what you're most concerned about. If you have to nitpick each of these categories, you may find that your divorce drags on and takes many months or years to resolve.
