How Are Military Divorces Different?
There are laws designed to protect active duty service members from being divorced without realizing it. For instance, an active service member must be personally served with a summons and a copy of the divorce action. In some cases, divorce proceedings may be postponed for the entire time a service member is deployed and up to 60 days after he or she returns home from duty.
If the service member wishes to go through with the divorce, he or she can waive this right. And, in cases of uncontested divorce, he or she can sign a waiver to acknowledge the divorce. In some cases, service members can testify over the telephone without having to physically be in Florida.
Why Hire a Maitland Military Divorce Lawyer?
It is important to keep in mind that divorces involving service members are complicated and have unique problems. These types of matters should only be handled by an attorney with experience in these specific types of cases to ensure your best interests are protected.
One common mistake attorneys make involves the amount of money paid in alimony. A spouse is entitled to a share of money received from promotions or pay increases before the divorce, but is not entitled to pay increases after the divorce is final. If an attorney fails to use the right language in the alimony statement, your spouse might get a part of the money you earn as a result of a post-divorce pay increase or promotion.
