Texas Military Divorce Laws

Understanding Military Divorce in Texas

If you are an active duty soldier in Texas or are married to someone in the armed forces, and you want to get a divorce, there are some special issues you must address.

Protecting the Rights of Military Personnel

Texas Military Divorce LawsA federal law, known as the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act, allows a Texas court, at its discretion, to postpone a divorce proceeding for the entire term of duty of an active service member, and for up to 60 days after discharge. This prevents a soldier from being a party to a divorce proceeding without the ability to participate or respond to the action. The active duty service member may waive this right at any time.

As a general rule, an active duty soldier must be served with a summons and complaint before a court can take any action. If the parties choose to pursue an uncontested divorce, the Texas court will have jurisdiction without service of the summons and complaint, provided the defendant signs or submits an affidavit acknowledging that the divorce has been filed.
