Want to learn more about the military divorce process? Below are further examples of military divorce problems our experienced military divorce lawyers can assist you with.

Military Divorce and Jurisdiction

The issue of jurisdiction arises when the parties are unsure of where to properly file their petition for divorce. Our Orlando divorce attorneys can assist you in evaluating the facts of your case to accurately determine the proper jurisdiction in which to handle your divorce.

The state of Florida has a six-month residency requirement before a divorce can properly be filed. Military members who have not been physically present in Florida, but have listed Florida as their state of residency, may still file for divorce in Florida. If you are uncertain about whether Florida has jurisdiction over your military divorce, call our attorneys today and schedule your consultation.

Military retirement and divorce

Military retirement is an employment benefit that is dividable in a divorce proceeding. If the spouse seeking their portion of the military retirement in a divorce case has been married to a military member for 10 years, then they are entitled to receive their court-ordered portion directly from the government. If the party seeking the portion of the military divorce has not been married to the service member for 10 years they can still receive their portion of the military retirement awarded under the divorce order, except the payment will be paid to the military member.

Our experienced military divorce attorneys are available to assist you with the unique issues arising from a military divorce. Call our Orlando office today at (800) 822-5170 to schedule a consultation.
