Military Divorce Dedicated to Securing the Best Possible Outcome for You

Manassas Military Divorce Attorneys

Divorce can be complex when both or one spouse is an active military member. The petition for a divorce must be filed in the state which the military member has their official residence, unless the military member consents. Filing in the state which the military member resides in is important because the Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act (USFSPA) establishes that the state where the spouse in the military resides is the only state that has the power to divide up the military pension in the event of a divorce. If Virginia is not the official residence of the military spouse, the other spouse must have lived in Virginia for at least 6 months to file in the state, or the military member must conset to jurisdiction.
