Texas Divorce and Members of the Military

Things to Consider as a Member of the Armed Forces

Members of the armed forces and their spouses know that, as enlisted individuals, military members often face unique challenges. It frequently comes as a surprise to learn, though, that military members and their families can face unique challenges during divorce proceedings. For instance:

  • Unique rules and laws govern the division of military pensions during divorce
  • Residency and jurisdiction requirements can be challenging
  • Court orders regarding child support can differ for military members
  • Serving notice against a deployed military member can be highly challenging
  • Service members are protected against all civil actions, including divorce proceedings, for an initial period of 90 days, with the possibility of an extension
