Military Divorce

Married life in the Military can be tough, especially when couples are separated for long periods of time during deployments. If you are in the Military and have decided to file for a divorce, the process will be much like any other non-military divorce except for a few issues that apply only to military families. 

Divorce While Deployed

If you are served with divorce papers while you are deployed overseas, you can ask the judge for an additional 90 days or more to respond Under the Service members Civil Relief Act (SCRA). If you are unable to defend your case because of military service, the judge may postpone the case until you return to the United States. If you would rather let the divorce go forward without delay, consider hiring a law firm like JB Dath Law  to protect your rights.

Custody and Visitation

Parenting after divorce can be difficult, especially if you are on active duty. If possible, try to reach an agreement with your spouse about custody and visitation that allows the children to spend time with each of you. Many states allow extra visitation after a deployment. If you are both on active duty and deployed at the same time, you will have to make arrangements for a relative to care for the children. The custody issue during Divorce can increase the stress in an already environment, which can cause emotional hurdles for the children involved. For this reason, at JB Dath Law we are dedicated to positive results and work hard to resolve conflicts, which in turn will alleviate the stress on you and your family.

Client Testimonials

"I would recommend JB Dath Law to anyone expecting results. Jonathan took on my case in the middle of a custody hearing, and completely turned around the outcome of my case. With the fate of the custody of my son on the line, he worked around the clock to bring himself up to speed on my trial, and came into the courtroom ready to go. Not only did he stop things from spiraling out of control, but he ended up securing me full physical and legal custody of my child. He continues to provide top notch services, and his knowledge of the courts and the systems is second to none in Yolo County. The only complaint I have is that I didn't retain his services from day one!"
