Facts on Filing for Divorce in the Navy

The military require a special knowledge of the laws applicable to divorce as it is not the same as civilian law. Did you know that federal legislation entitles active members of the armed forces to delay a divorce? Military pensions, just like their civilian counterparts, can be divided in the event of divorce. However, they are subject to different rules and regulations. Alimony and child support are also a matter for special rules.

Due to regulations governing active or retired members of the military, calculating income and collecting support can be much more complicated. Knowledge of the definition of "disposable retirement income," for example, is vital in determining support orders if dealing with retired military personnel. Federal laws may also come into play, should a case end up in court. Strategy and planning are therefore vital in such cases. Having a complete understanding of the special rules pertaining to Navy and Marine divorce is what Cutter & Lax can provide.
