A Illinois military divorce follows separate, distinct laws versus those in a civilian divorce and requires the expertise of experienced military divorce lawyers. There are specific processes for obtaining service upon an active duty spouse and the accompanying military rules and regulations regarding service of a soldier. If requesting maintenance, child support, or other financial support, the division of military pension is also governed under a separate and unique set of laws.
Active duty spouses also are granted legal protection to allow them to “devote their entire energy to the defense needs of the Nation.” This protection is in effect through the time of service and 60 days after active duty. With this protection in place, you may find it necessary to postpone the filing of the divorce papers.
