Divorce Lawyer in San Diego Examines Military Divorce

John Griffith, a divorce lawyer in San Diego, examines divorce for military families.


SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA - The Department of Defense, through their research, found that couples with spouses in the military are one of the few demographics in the United States with a climbing divorce rate.

Marriage for military couples is much more complex, than a typical marriage. The divorce process for military couples is also more complex than a civilian divorce.

“Divorce cases between military couples are handled differently than a typical divorce case,” says John Griffith of Griffith & Young, a divorce lawyer in San Diego who provides of divorce and custody services. “Child custody is a complex issue in military divorces, especially if one of the spouses is deployed internationally.” Similar to most Americans, financial stress is the main cause for divorce among military couples.  

A recent article in USA Today mentioned that military couples are twice as likely to accrue more than $10,000 in credit card debt than the average civilian family. Researchers discovered frequent deployments of a military spouse raised the chances of the couple divorcing due to creating a confusing family dynamic. 

Being aware of these causes, the government created certain acts to help military couples.
In 2003, the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act was passed to defer certain civil obligations and lighten the financial stress of the spouses and family of deployed soldiers. SCRA aids military families with liabilities, such as credit card debt and taxes.

In the event a military couple wants to divorce, the legal process is much like a civilian divorce. The Service Member Family Protection Act was approved to help military couples impartially devise a child custody plan and remove the possibility of the service member being denied custody due to previous deployments.

The complexities of military divorce demands a family attorney gives the case unique attention. Being a veteran of the U.S. Army, Griffith offers military couples compassionate divorce counseling.
