Some Factors Surrounding Military Divorce
Filing a military divorce is dependent upon federal law and the state in which the divorce is filed. In most cases, the state in which the spouse is residing is the state where the divorce is filed. The Department of Defense demands all members of the military to comply with all spousal support, child support, and child custody matters as decided by the court. If the ex-spouse is not a member of the military there are a few t things that can determine access to your military benefits.
- Factors that are considered when establishing benefits include:
- TRICARE based upon the length of time in the service, the length of the marriage, and how much those times have overlapped.
- Eligibility for the Continued Health Care Benefit Program
- Retirement and pension benefits being deemed subject to division
