Vista Military Divorce Lawyer
The process of divorce can be a time consuming and emotionally exhausting one, especially if you or your partner is a military service member, which often adds an even higher level of complexity. While no divorce is simple, deciding which state to file for divorce in can be made difficult by the deployment status of military personnel, especially if they are stationed in a location other than their spouse’s residence. Additionally, specific legislation regarding military divorce offers unique rights and regulations that must be considered.

Deciding Where to File
Among the many concerns facing an individual considering military divorce is deciding on a state in which to file. Due to deployment or assignment throughout the country, there may be several states in which you can file, such as the following:
- The state in which a non-military spouse resides
- That state in which a military spouse is currently stationed
- The state in which a military spouse is a legal resident
Because you will be bound to the state laws regarding divorce in the state in which you file, it is important to consult with an attorney to determine which option will be most advantageous to you. Additionally, those undertaking a military divorce must consider the potential ramifications of the Uniformed Services Former Spouse’s Protection Act of 1982.
If you are considering divorce as a military member or the spouse of military personnel, obtaining skilled legal representation is an essential part of protecting your rights and interests as you move forward.
