How service of process can affect a military divorce

When it comes to military divorces, they are almost as simple as a civilian divorce. When two civilians decide to divorce, they deal with the issue of dividing assets, child custody, alimony and more. These issues are experienced by members of the military as well. Before any member of the military or their spouse can file for divorce, they need to examine the military divorce laws, as they can slow the process of divorce, especially if the couple are not familiar with how things work.

Custody disputes can be traumatic for all parties involved. Not only has a marriage or relationship ended, but now everyone has to deal with the issue of child custody, which may cause even more damage for the parents and the child than the divorce.

Why getting a prenuptial agreement will protect your assets

Getting a divorce is never easy, but when it is a high net worth divorce, it can be especially difficult. High asset divorces involve disputes about the division of assets, child support and alimony and spousal support that may not always end with all parties receiving what they wanted. Even though these types of divorces lead to multiple disputes, these disagreements can easily be avoided if the necessary steps are taken prior to the two people entering the marriage.

How do sole and joint-managing conservatorships differ?

In these situations, placement for the children is one of the most important things to be decided during the separation process. Along with child custody being determined by the court, sole-managing conservatorship or joint-sole conservatorship is also assigned to one of both parents.
