| Jan 4, 2017 | Military Divorce

Throughout your ex’s military service, you supported him or her. The frequent moves and the uncertain schedules are only two of the things you have had to deal with. Now that you are going through a divorce, you might be thinking about how much your life is going to change now that you are getting a divorce.

We know that all of this is scary time for you. The concerns that you have are understandable because your life is changing dramatically. You might be concerned with how you are going to get medical care and what your rights are going to be after the divorce. In some cases, you might qualify for coverage under the 20/20/20 rule.

If you and your ex have been married for more than two decades, your ex has served in the military for at least that long and those two terms overlapped, finding out about the 20/20/20 rule is important. We can help you to explore how this might impact you.

Other considerations in a military divorce include child support, child custody and spousal support. Each of these points should be addressed individually so that you know that you have a comprehensive understanding of what you can expect.

When you are leaving a military spouse, be sure that you are prepared with plans to move out of military housing and get your new life started. All of these, as well as the considerations of the divorce itself are important. We can help you to learn about what military laws, as well as civilian laws, are going to play a part in your case.
