Given the many contexts and dynamics associated with civilian divorce, military divorce brings its own set of elements, adding to an already complicated process. While military families face issues similar to other couples such as division of property, alimony, child support, child custody and visitations, questions surface as to where to file for divorce and what jurisdiction will cover their proceedings. This is mostly due to the fact that many military couples have one party that lives or is deployed outside of the state. In this case, some may seek to delay divorce proceedings until they can return and deal with the matter in person. Even so, another important consideration is the division of military retirement funds, which are a form of marital property. The duration of the marriage and the number of years spent in military service are taken into account when allocating retirement funds.
