Military Divorce Requirements in Tennessee

Military divorce is a unique area of family law that combines state and federal regulations. When you or your spouse are serving in the military and considering divorce, it's important to understand the specific requirements and processes involved.

In Tennessee, the residency requirement for divorce is generally six months, but certain exceptions can apply to military personnel stationed in the state. To initiate a divorce, you or your spouse must reside in Tennessee for a minimum of 90 days before filing, even if stationed here temporarily.

What is the Difference Between a Military Divorce and a Regular Divorce?

Military divorces can differ significantly from civilian divorces due to the unique challenges of the military lifestyle. Here are some key distinctions to consider:

  • Jurisdiction: Military members may be stationed in different states or even abroad, which can complicate matters regarding jurisdiction. Determining the appropriate state in which to file for divorce can be complex. We can guide you through this process to ensure the jurisdiction is properly established.
  • Service of Process: Serving divorce papers to a spouse actively serving in the military can be more challenging. There are specific rules and protections in place to safeguard the rights of military members, such as the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA). Understanding and adhering to these regulations is critical, and our legal team is well-versed in navigating these complexities.
  • Division of Benefits: Military pensions and benefits, including TRICARE and survivor benefits, can be significant factors in a military divorce. Understanding the rules for dividing these assets and benefits is vital to achieving a fair settlement.
  • Child Custody and Support: Deployments and frequent relocations can create unique challenges in child custody and support arrangements. Our Clarksville military divorce attorneys have extensive experience handling these issues, ensuring that the best interests of your children are prioritized.
