Military Divorce Laws in Virginia
To file for divorce in Virginia, you and your spouse must reside in Virginia
or be stationed in Virginia. If you serve your spouse while he or she
is on active duty, divorce proceedings can be postponed for the entire
time your spouse is on duty and for up to 60 days thereafter.
There are additional regulations and circumstances that make military divorces
- The Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act
- The Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act, 50 UCS section 521
- Overseas deployment
- Determining custody and visitation of your children
You may not be entitled to military retirement benefits after divorcing
a serviceman, unless you have been married for 10 years or longer while
your spouse was in active duty. Further, alimony and child support may
not exceed 60% of a serviceman’s pay and allowances.
