U.S. State Military Divorce Laws

Readers of Military Divorce Tips often ask about the military divorce laws of each state.

Instead of writing a supplemental book, we thought it would be much faster if there was a place online that could be immediately updated as changes or issues occur in each state’s interpretation of the USFSPA.

The clickable map below was begun in October 2012, to collect and share both past and present information on military divorce laws across different states. It is in progress, and continues with the support of subscriber’s submissions.

Due to jurisdiction rules, you will have only a few choices of where to file for divorce. You can read comments people have made on choosing a “best state” and comparing military divorce rules.

The best reason to compare military divorce laws would be to gain a greater understanding of what is considered fair and equitable and, more impotantly, what you and your spouse feel is fair and equitable.

Learning about different laws can help us gain a better understanding of different viewpoints, which should result in better divorce decrees.
