The Challenges of a Military Divorce

The divorce process can get extremely complicated when one spouse is deployed overseas. Fortunately, all military personnel are protected by state and federal laws, including the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA). Congress originally passed SCRA to prevent litigants – including civilian spouses – from filing actions against active-duty personnel without first securing a court order.

Per SCRA, a tribunal can issue a “stay of proceedings” that suspends a civil case until the deployed spouse can serve as an active participant. This protects servicemembers from coming home to default divorces and one-sided court orders. However, there are other critical issues and contingencies that can impact the outcome of a military divorce case. For this reason and more, it’s important that both spouses retain skilled and knowledgeable legal representation as soon as possible.
