Military Divorces & Child Custody Laws

Military Divorces & Child Custody Laws

When military couples divorce, they face a lot of unique issues that civilian couples who are going through a divorce may not typically face. In addition to some special issues concerning proper service of process when filing for divorce and residency requirements, military couples also face special considerations when it comes to child custody during a military divorce.

Child Custody Issues In Military Divorce

Many military families involve one active duty spouse with the other often remaining at home with the children. The scenario is commonly an active duty husband and a stay-at-home military wife, but the reverse is also true. The wife often remains at home to care for the couple’s children, foregoing developing a career or obtaining an education or job training to raise the family. The active duty husband often is deployed for long periods of time or sent to special military training, leaving the wife to care for the children and the home. A lot of sacrifices are made by both the husband and the wife, and military service can place a strain on a marriage.

When the couple can’t hold it together any longer, or things are just no longer working in the relationship, the couple opts to split through a divorce, and child custody is one of the most challenging aspects of the divorce. While the husband and wife might want to try for a joint custody arrangement, the non-deployed spouse might end up with custody of the children.

The family court looks at the situation of the military parents and works to make a decision that is in the best interest of the child. If the active duty father, for example, is often deployed for long periods of time, the court may find that things would be best for the children if the non-deployed mother gets full custody of the children.

International Military Divorces & Custody

Another special issue that sometimes arises in military divorce cases where children are involved is how custody claims work when the child lives abroad. Many American military members marry someone abroad, but then divorce and need help obtaining custody rights to their child who lives overseas. International child custody cases can be challenging, because custody must be obtained from a court that has jurisdiction over the child. For a child that lives predominantly overseas, jurisdiction most likely will not belong to the South Carolina courts.

Generally speaking, the state or country where the child predominately resides has jurisdiction over the child, and that is the place where custody must be sought. The child’s status as a US citizen has no bearing on the issue of jurisdiction for child custody matters, nor does the parent’s place of residence have an impact on where a claim can be brought for custody of the child. If the child lives abroad, only the foreign court where the child lives will be able to decide custody matters.

    naturally like your website but you need to test the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to tell the truth then again I will definitely come again again.

    The root of your writing while sounding agreeable originally, did not sit very well with me after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you were able to make me a believer but only for a short while. I however have got a problem with your jumps in logic and one might do nicely to fill in all those gaps. In the event that you can accomplish that, I will certainly end up being amazed.

    Smashing post. Btw did you try this product: http://bit.ly/2N5npwG Looks like it’s one of those products you don’t normally talk about. I’ve come across it just now and thought I’d test it out just to see how good it is. Have found some video reviews on Dailymotion and they look legit (I mean not scripted). Not all products out there have so many positive reviews. Have a look on it, maybe this can finally solve our problems (or at least yours).
