Military Divorce

Financial strains bring trouble to marriage. Not only is the current economy in a shambles, but military members are bearing the burden of repeated tours of duty abroad. Consequently, rising numbers of armed service members, from Carlisle Army War College, the Mechanicsburg Camp Hill PA Navy Base, New Cumberland Defense Depot, and other facilities are facing divorce. Whether you are in the area, in another state, or on a tour of duty is not important. Your status in the military (or your spouse’s) does throw a few complications into your divorce. Contact a Camp Hill, PA military divorce attorney.

One of the parties must be a resident of Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania law will apply to child custody, child support and other issues as in any divorce. Federal law, including The Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (USFSPA) may also apply to your military divorce case. The spouse of the service member may have some rights to benefits and pension funds.

Retirement Benefits Division

If you are the spouse of a service member, your rights to health and other benefits depend on:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The length of your spouse’s service
  • The overlap of these periods
