The military personnel of our country are often separated from their families for months, if not years, at a time. The stress of being apart from a loved one, the worry of having a spouse at war, and the unexpectedness of being left alone with a child, are just a few of the scenarios unique to military marriages. The pressures specific to military marriages can make or break one, and unfortunately, divorce is not a stranger to our soldiers.
The factor of being in the military offers particular challenges to a married couple on an emotional level, but generally does not provide specific benefits when it comes to marital dissolution. Servicemen and woman receive no preference when it comes to divorce, and a judge will not allow a military background to be used to advantage in litigation. The only major difference between a civilian divorce, and one involving military personnel, is that the proceedings can be stayed under the Service members Civil Relief Act if, and when a party is deployed. There are however, issues that may be of more concern to our soldiers, because of their travels between states and countries, and the composition of their assets.
