Complications that can arise during a military divorce

Veterans Day is a time to honor those who have served this country in the military. It is also a time to reflect on the sacrifice people make when they or their loved ones serve in the military.

For many people, serving their country takes them away from their families for extended periods of time and this can put considerable strain on relationships. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for people to get divorced during or following their time in the military. Those who do can face some difficult obstacles that other people may not have to deal with in the same way.

For example, there can be issues when it comes to parenting plans and custody. If you or the other parent of your child is stationed elsewhere or travels frequently as a part of military membership, it will likely be in the child's best interest to spend much of the time with the more stationary parent or other caregiver.

Another challenge military members and veterans struggle with during divorce is how their benefits will be affected by the split. Marital assets are eligible for distribution and in accordance with Tennessee laws they can be split in a manner that the courts deem to be fair. This typically includes military benefits and pensions.

Other military-specific concerns that can arise in a divorce include issues like keeping the divorce moving through the courts if one person is unable to attend hearings or meetings because he or she is stationed elsewhere. There can also be complications when it comes to meeting residency requirements that must be met to get divorced in states including this one.

In order to resolve these and the many other complications that come up in a military divorce, it can be crucial to have the guidance and support of an attorney familiar with this specific type of divorce. Our firm has helped members of the military and veterans work through the family legal system and we can discuss your case, questions and concerns with you. Visit our website to learn more about us.
