Choose a Divorce Attorney Familiar with Military Law
One of the most complex aspects of a military divorce is determining retirement and disability pay. Although military disposable retired pay may be divisible upon divorce, pay such as Special Combat-Related Compensation (SCRC) or Concurrent Retirement and Disability Pay (CRDP) are usually not divided between spouses. These complex issues should be handled by a knowledgeable military divorce lawyer who can craft a nuanced divorce decree crafted to preserve your benefits and ensure your retirement is sufficiently protected to avoid an argument in family court.
Another unique aspect of divorces between a military service member and a civilian is the right of service members to adopt a safeguard to prevent a default judgement being made against them, which is known as the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act. It also let the service member table the divorce proceedings while they are on active duty, serving overseas.
If you are in Mission Viejo, contact a lawyer at The Hunter Law Group for help with your military divorce. Although many military clients are stationed in California and natives of other states, you must have been a resident of California for at least 6 months or more to file for a divorce in California, and one of the parties must currently live in California.
