Family Law Issues Affecting Military Servicemembers
Divorce proceedings often encompass several family law issues, including
the provision of
financial support for minor children and former spouses, as well as matters involving child custody and visitation rights.
The dynamic nature of military service can substantially interfere with
the progress of a family law case. In recognition of the unique challenges
presented by military divorces, federal and state laws have been enacted
to clarify the rights and responsibilities of the parties and grant special
legal protections for military servicemembers.
Military divorces often involve the following issues:
Child Custody for Military Families: When a couple with minor children gets a divorce, one of the most important
questions concerns their privileges and duties concerning the care, custody,
and control of minor children. However, a parent’s ability to provide
their child with adequate care and attention often hinges on the stability
of their living situation. We can advise you about the legal ramifications
that military life has on
child custody arrangements, and coach you on a reasonable legal course of action that
promotes your child’s best interests.
The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act: One of the federal laws concerning legal proceedings involving military
servicemembers is known as the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA),
found under Title 50 of the United States Code. Lawsuits against military
servicemembers must comply with the SCRA. Furthermore, the protections
of the SCRA can make military divorce cases a lengthy endeavor, depending
on the nature of the servicemember’s military duties.
Military Pensions & Benefits: In any divorce, one of the most contentious issues involves the division
of the couple’s property.
Property division matters in divorce cases are usually governed by state laws, but there
are federal law considerations in cases of military divorce. We can help
military families in California find a just resolution to their property
division disputes under the rules of community property.
