Army legal separation dating

Military, domestic situations can be confusing because they are governed by a mixed hodgepodge of military regulations, state divorce laws, and procedures, as well as Federal statutes.In this article, well try and make a little bit of sense out of the confusion.In the coming weeks, I'll attempt to cover all of the various aspects of a military-related divorce or separation situation, including the "rights" of the military member and family members, military family housing, spousal & child support, ID Cards, the Uniform Services Former Spouse Protection Act, Soldiers & Sailors Civil Relief Act, domestic violence situations, garnishments, divorce jurisdiction, lawyers, and more.Overall, it's important to realize that the military considers divorce and separation to be a private civil matter, best resolved by the courts.Sometimes military spouses expect too much out of military authorities.They think they can contact their spouse's commander, and the commander will waive a magic wand and make everything better.In most cases, that's unrealistic -- just as it would be unrealistic to expect the manager at K-Mart to become involved in your marriage situation, should your spouse work there.The commander has limited authority in the area of divorce & separation.

In a vast majority of military, domestic situations, the correct procedure is to obtain an attorney, and take it to court -- just like everyone else in the United States has to do.

Military personnel and family members all have access to free legal services provided by the "legal office" (JAG).

What most people don't realize, however, is the JAG is of very little help when it comes to divorce and separation. They cannot prepare divorce or separation documents; they cannot represent you in court, they cannot file legal divorce or separation paperwork for you.

Quite often, even the "general advice" may be of little use, as there is no requirement that a military lawyer is licensed to practice law in the state they are stationed in, so the lawyer's knowledge of divorce laws of that particular state may be limited.

For military divorce, separation, or child support situations, you need to ( and I can't emphasize this enough!!!!!

) consult with a civilian attorney, knowledgeable of the divorce laws of your particular state.
