GRAND RAPIDS MILITARY DIVORCE ISSUES

Military divorces are different that the typical divorce.  The military poses unique challenges when facing a divorce.

 

WHERE DO I FILE FOR DIVORCE IF I AM IN THE MILITARY?

Divorce jurisdiction is the same in a military divorce as a typical divorce.  You must reside in the state 180 days and the county 10 days prior to filing.  What is unique with the military is that your residency at the time you enlist in the military is the proper jurisdiction (if you have not abandon that residency).  For example, if you resided in Grand Rapids Michigan prior to enlisting, and you are now living on base in North Carolina, your residency is still Grand Rapids Michigan for divorce purposes.

 

MILITARY SUPPORT OF DEPENDENTS - SPOUSE AND CHILDREN

The military requires that an enlisted person support a spouse and children if they are living apart Even if a divorce is not filed.  The military, upon the request of a spouse, will take up to 50% of the military pay for the benefit of a spouse and children.  This is typically not done through the court system.  Often times it can be more than what the court would order in a divorce.  

 

CUSTODY AND PARENTING TIME WITH CHILDREN IN THE MILITARY

If you are on active duty in the military, parenting time can create unique challenges.  Parenting time must be set-up around leave and other free time.  Parenting time cannot work on a typically schedule.  Skype and facetime are now being used as an addition to parenting time to help the bond between military parent and children.  Also, parenting time with immedate family can also be set-up to help the family bonding process.
