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.

At Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, our legal team is dedicated to providing effective and efficient representation in an effort to resolve your divorce proceedings swiftly, allowing you to move forward with your life as quickly as possible. We are well-versed on the intricacies of military divorce and can help you understand the many facets of such a divorce. Call our Vista military divorce attorneys today at (760) 757-6854.

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.
