Special Issues Concerning Military Divorce In Virginia
Obtaining a Virginia divorce when one or both spouses are military service members poses some special issues. While many aspects of a military divorce in Virginia are the same as civilian divorces, such as the grounds for divorce, there are several key differences that affect military service members.
Virginia may not have jurisdiction to address all issues. Some of the issues that the military service member may need to have addressed may need to be resolved in other jurisdictions.
These are just a few of the special issues that can complicate a military divorce.
