Jacksonville Military Divorce Attorney

Compassionate Advocacy for Service Members

Military families face difficulties unique to most other relationships. Time spent apart during long deployments combined with the stress of active duty can cause great strain on a relationship; sometimes, too much strain for a relationship to endure. Our Jacksonville military divorce lawyer is understanding of these circumstances and wants to help when things become too rough to continue. We are knowledgeable in the special details involved with military divorce, and we want to help ease the stress.

Military divorce is unique in that both state and federal laws apply. To obtain a divorce in Florida, at least one party must reside in the state. Additionally, property division laws have specific instructions regarding military families (as explained below). Retaining a member of our team ensures that your divorce will be handled with the utmost care and that all assets will be handled with respect to the family and special circumstances that exist for service members.

Navigating Military Divorce

Military spouses who get divorced may be eligible for benefits under the 20/20/20 rule.

20/20/20 Benefit eligibility requirements:

  1. 20 years married
  2. 20 years of service creditable for retirement
  3. 20 years of overlapping service and marriage

This rule, when applicable, entitles spouses to continued coverage under Tricare and a portion of the service member’s retirement pay. Essentially, it treats the former spouse as a “dependent” even after divorce.

Regardless of eligibility for 20/20/20, there is still property to be divided, possible child custody to arrange and child support to determine. Handling these tasks while also serving, or having a spouse away on duty, can be stressful. Our attorney is available to help navigate you through the process. Remember, both active duty service members and retired service members have special circumstances in military divorce.
