Divorce proceedings involving military members are much different than traditional New York divorces. Although the grounds for divorce remain the same, issues involving spousal maintenance, property division and child support are dealt with in a different manner.
In addition, military service members enjoy certain protections that ordinary civilians do not enjoy in family law proceedings. When on active duty, the Service members Civil Relief Act protects military members from lawsuits, including divorces. Government restrictions also make it difficult for former spouses to share in certain benefits. The Uniformed Services Former Spouse’s Protection Act prevents ex-spouses from being awarded retirement benefits unless they were married for at least ten years while their spouse was on active duty. We make it our mission to protect your assets throughout the divorce process and ensure that your children are well taken care of.
