For many servicemembers, factors such as overseas deployment, child custody and visitation arrangements, benefits, and federal laws may affect your Maryland military divorce.

The “Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act” and the “Servicemembers Civil Relief Act” May Impact Your Maryland Military Divorce

A Maryland military divorce may be impacted by the Federal Servicemembers Civil Relief Act of 2003 (“SCRA”) and the Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act (“USFSPA”).

The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act allows servicemembers to “stay” court hearings, such as divorce hearings or child custody hearings, if the servicemember’s military service will materially impact the servicemember’s ability to protect his or her interests. The SCRA requires a court or administrative body to grant at least a 90-day stay if requested by the serviceman or servicewoman.

The SCRA also provides protection for servicemen and servicewomen by preventing the active duty military member from being divorced without knowing it or without having a sufficient amount of time to handle the divorce proceedings.

Military Child Custody and Family Care Plans

Single parents and dual military families should have family care plans in the event the servicemember is deployed. These plans outline the physical and legal care of the servicemember’s dependent children during the servicemember’s deployment.
