Biggest Military Divorce Mistake

Managing a divorce case while actively deployed can be understandably stressful. The notion gives many of the country’s best military members hesitance to start the divorce process. Take it from our law firm with more than three decades’ worth of experience: do not wait until you return from deployment to file for divorce.

Encouraging or creating unnecessary delays are the biggest mistake you can make when going through a military divorce. If you wait to file, your spouse in the States could take it as an opportunity to abuse financial accounts or hide assets that may have otherwise gone to you. Filing as soon as you can also ensures that military child custody and visitation are involved in the divorce.
