Military divorces differ from other divorces

Divorce laws do not differ for members of the military; but there are, generally, more complications. Deployment; transfer to different states; being married in one state, having residence in another and being stationed in still another; details related to military benefits including pension and retirement; these can all make divorce in the military particularly challenging. At the Belt Law Firm, we understand. We are also deeply familiar with the many federal laws and protections that apply to military members and their spouses and how they influence divorce negotiations:

  • Service members Civil Relief Act (SCRA)
  • The Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act (SSCRA)
  • Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act (USFSPA)

Dividing assets and benefits in a military divorce can be complex.  Call military divorce lawyer and former member of the U.S. Armed Services, John C. Belt at 480-837-3600.
