Military Divorce in Oak Harbor, WA

Divorce is the legal process of ending a marriage. From a legal perspective, the process of getting a divorce is no different for members of the military. However, given the nature of active duty, members of the military and their spouses may have some additional challenges when obtaining a divorce. That's why it's critical to work with family law attorneys who have experience handling military divorces. Your lawyer should be familiar with your state's residency requirements for military couples that are getting divorced, as well as the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act (USFSPA) and the Survivor’s Benefit Plan. Law firms with experience representing divorcing military members or their spouses will also understand the child custody challenges that may be presented by long-term deployments, and can work with clients to negotiate custody agreements and visitation schedules.
