What Makes a Military Divorce Different?
In Georgia, military divorces follow many of the same procedures as a standard divorce. There are special rules and exceptions, however, to accommodate the fact that military personnel are often stationed out of state or overseas. To file for a divorce in Georgia, you or your spouse must live or be stationed in the state. As with any other divorce, the process tends to be much quicker and easier when the two parties can compromise and work together.
Some unique aspects of military divorces include:
- Child & spousal support may not exceed 60% of the military member’s income
- Military retirement benefits may be divided if married 10 years or more
- Active duty service members may not be held in default for not responding
- Proceedings may be delayed while the military member is on duty
