Can I use the Uniformed Services Former Spouse Protection Act?

When a military service member chooses to divorce his or her spouse, a number of considerations must be addressed for the spouse. A number of benefits enjoyed by military spouses may still be available to them, depending on a number of factors. These protections and more are contained within the Uniformed Services Former Spouse Protection Act.

How mediation can help your uncontested divorce

You know your marriage can't be saved. You and your spouse have grown apart or there has been a catastrophic breach of trust. Still, that doesn't mean either of you wants a drawn-out battle in the courts. You want to ensure the divorce is fair for everyone involved, including your children, and you want to make the process as painless as possible.

Know your rights if you are going through a military divorce

Serving your country in the military is an admirable thing to do. Unfortunately, this decision isn't always one that is easy on the family. Your spouse might get tired of the military life and decide that it is time to end the marriage. If you are a service member going through this situation, you need to make sure that you know your rights.

A messy divorce could affect kids' health for years

A recent study by researchers at prestigious Carnegie Mellon University provides divorcing parents with another reason to work hard at civility. The study revealed that adults whose parents' relationship during their childhood had deteriorated to the point of not speaking following a divorce were over three times more likely to contract common cold and flu viruses than those whose parents were still married or had moved on and stayed civil following a divorce.
