How state and federal laws affect military divorce

Military divorces share many similarities with civilian divorces, however, there are certain rules and requirements that are different during a military divorce. The divorce process can be challenging for any couple, so it is useful to have an understanding of the process in advance.

Military pay, benefits and ex-spouses

There are many advantages that Virginia residents can take from offering their service to the United States military. Aside from excellent training and experience, service members can retire from their military careers with substantial pensions and good benefits for themselves and their family members. However, when a service member and their spouse choose to divorce, it can be hard to know just what will happen with the financial and benefits-based perks a service member collects from their branch of the military.

Is your spouse keeping secrets in divorce?

You may find navigating a high asset divorce extremely challenging. Most Virginia residents who have been through similar processes would likely agree. A key factor toward achieving a fair and agreeable settlement, however, can be a willingness from both spouses to cooperate and compromise, and also to have full disclosure when it comes to finances and assets. Virginia, like most other states, follows equitable property division laws. So the focus is on a fair division, which isn't necessarily 50/50.
