Representing The Best Interests Of Our Clients
There are certain laws and procedures that must be followed when it comes to military divorces. The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) states that a divorce can be postponed while the service member is on active duty, as well as an additional 60 days afterward. However, if they wish to proceed with the separation, they can waive these protections and continue moving forward. The active duty member also must be served with divorce papers in person. If it is uncontested, they can waive this right as well.
One unique set of challenges military families face is the actual act of filing. In typical divorces, it must be filed where the couple lives.
