Escondido Military Divorce

Divorce can potentially be a time-consuming and emotionally taxing undertaking, and the unique challenges of a military divorce only add an additional layer of complexity to the process. Various issues can come into play when divorces take place between a military and non-military spouse, most notably the appropriate jurisdiction in which to undergo the process.

Due to the highly mobile nature of a military career, it is not uncommon for spouses to live in different states in which different sets of divorces laws are in place for the handling of specific types of assets. Disparities in custody laws can also affect the divorce settlement, making the decision on where to file and how to go about the process an important one, deserving of the attention of a skilled legal professional.

Where to File

Depending on the living arrangements of the couple and the deployment status of the military spouse, there are often multiple options for the location in which you can file for divorce, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The following are the most common options:

  • The state in which the military spouse is a legal resident
  • The state in which the non-military spouse is a resident
  • The state in which the military spouse is stationed

By consulting with a knowledgeable attorney, you will be able to make an informed decision on what options is most amenable to your needs and those of your family.
