Military Divorce Attorneys

Sean Robertson and Robertson Legal Group, LLC focuses on military divorces, which have unique challenges.  The Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act enables a court in Illinois to postpone divorce proceedings due to a military service commitment of one spouse.  This Act allows a military spouse to delay divorce proceedings until they return home from deployment.  This Act does allow temporary orders involving children.  The Act aims to provide stability for children.  An Illinois Court may temporarily delay court proceedings because the Act is intending to protect military spouses from divorce proceedings while they are on active duty.

Residency Requirements and Filing Restrictions

Illinois divorce law requires that one spouse resides in the State of Illinois for a minimum of 90 days; or in the alternative, residency is established by a spouse stationed in Illinois for 90 days.  Military service of process requires an understanding of military divorce procedures.

Property Division in Illinois Divorce Cases

Marital asset division in military divorces is complex.  The Uniform Services Former Spouses Protection Act (USFSPA) limits a spouse’s right to a military member’s government pension and other benefits.  Under USFSPA, the divorcing military spouse has a strict eligibility time standard.

Child Support and Child Visitation Guidelines

An Illinois divorce involves negotiations of child support, a division of assets and liabilities, and parenting plans.  Experienced child support and divorce lawyers are beneficial because of the complexity of military divorces.  A military divorce attorney is an asset.  Military divorces require a solid understanding of military divorces and issues such as child support, child visitation and parental allocation of parental rights and responsibilities are unique for military members.  Furthermore, parenting time negotiations are more complicated due to infrequent or out of state parenting issues.  Our law firm is an excellent decision for your military divorce.
