Divorce dos and don'ts

Making decisions during the turmoil of a divorce is difficult and riddled with risks. A spouse considering the end of a marriage should carefully consider their first steps and avoiding other actions.

Changes to military pensions impact divorce

Many federal and state laws and policies may have a financial impact on spouses undergoing a military divorce. The New Blended Retirement System, taking effect on Jan. 1, will have major consequences for military retirement and families undergoing a military divorce.

The pros and cons of mediation

Many couples face complex disputes at the end of a marriage. Divorce mediation may be an avenue for resolving these issues if both spouses are willing to seek amicable conversations to reach a settlement. This process, however, may not work for every couple.

Being in the military doesn't mean you can't co-parent

Your status as a member of the Armed Forces means that a divorce has some added complexities with which most civilians don't have to deal. Even so, you are a parent just like anyone else. However, you may struggle with finding a way to remain in your children's lives and to meet your obligations to your country.
