Every divorce presents its own unique set of challenges, and can leave you feeling stressed, confused, and emotionally drained. A military divorce can be even more dramatic because the law is often confusing and difficult to understand. State laws still apply during a military divorce, but federal laws also come into play and can make the process far more complicated. If you are in a military divorce situation then it makes sense to get all of the legal information you can from qualified Washington State military divorce attorneys.
Information is even more vital if you or your spouse is on active duty. The law states that persons on active duty cannot be held in default if a spouse files for a divorce, thus preventing them from being unable to protect their own interests during the proceedings.
In fact, a person on active duty can delay divorce proceedings until their time of service has concluded, and for 60 days after that date. If the spouse on active duty agrees that the divorce can proceed, then the action can proceed in court. With so much to consider, before taking any action you should talk to one of our Washington State legal professionals about your situation so that they can start offering your some reliable counsel.
Before military divorce proceedings can go any further, you must meet some other requirements according to the law. For instance, you cannot file for a divorce in the state if the
active duty member lives outside of Washington. Our Courts can only establish jurisdiction in the case if they are stationed in Washington State.
Our military divorce professionals can help you with complicated issues involving the child custody, spousal support, division of property, military benefits, and retirement. Additionally, child support will be assessed according to the Washington State Support Schedule.
