Servicemembers Civil Relief Act
In a civilian divorce, one spouse will serve the other spouse with divorce
papers, and the receiving spouse will have a certain amount of time to
respond. Deployments, training, overseas postings, and other common aspects
of military life can make it difficult for a spouse in the military to
schedule their next steps. The Servicemember Civil Relief Act (SCRA) is
a law that can allow an active-duty spouse to request a stay on the proceedings.
This delay can prevent any legal proceedings, including divorce, child
custody hearings, or support hearings, to occur for at least 90 days.
The stay can be extended until the service member’s duties no longer
interfere with their participation.
Military Pensions and Benefits
Military spouses are entitled to a great number of military benefits. These
can include health care and part of the service member spouse’s
pension. Divorce can be a challenge when there is a military pension involved
since there are many laws and regulations, which can make dividing benefits
and pensions difficult. An experienced military divorce lawyer can explain
these laws and help you understand what options are available to you.
