Addressing The Unique Concerns Of Military Divorce


Military divorce actions have certain considerations that must be taken into account. Whether you are an active service member or the spouse of one, it is important that you factor in these special circumstances and laws when navigating your divorce filing. Having an experienced Destin military divorce lawyer on your side can be crucial to making sure these issues are handled properly.

Winter Spires & Associates, P.A.​, with offices in Destin and Marianna, has extensive experience handling military divorce actions. We take the time to get to know you so that we can help you make clear decisions that you feel comfortable with and will protect you in the future. Contact us today to learn more during a phone, Skype or in-person consultation. We help people serving on Eglin Air Force Base, Hurlburt Field, Naval Air Station Pensacola and other installations.

Active duty service members have a right to waive postponement of divorce proceedings if they want to proceed quickly with a divorce filing. This is allowed at the discretion of local Florida courts, as well as by the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act, 50 UCS Section 521. Asking for this waiver can help if you are about to be deployed.

Our attorney can also help you resolve other components of your divorce, including military child custody matters. In many of these situations, visitation can be difficult and relocating is often a complicated issue because of orders to move from base to base.

We also help people apply for injunctions when a military member is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and may be a danger to themselves or loved ones. If you are in the military and are facing one of these injunctions, we can help you understand and minimize the impact it will have on your job, your military status, your family and other concerns.

We will help you with child support calculations. Both child support and spousal support or alimony must not exceed 60 percent of a military member’s pay and allowances in Florida.

Our firm will help you with all property division issues, including military pensions. Our goal is an equitable settlement, but if that cannot be reached, we will pursue your interests aggressively in court.
