Ending our blog series Colorado Military Divorce FAQs, below, we’ll answer some final questions about these types of divorce cases.
Colorado Military Divorce: More Important Info
Q – How is custody dealt with in Colorado military divorce?
A – Custody can be one of the more complicated issues in Colorado military divorce, particularly if deployment and/or mobilization are factors in a given case.
In fact, although we can’t really get into any specifics about custody in Colorado military divorce cases (as how mobilization and/or deployment may impact custody in Colorado military divorce will depend on the specifics of a given case), we can tell you that, if custody is disputed in your Colorado military divorce, it’s best to retain an experienced military divorce lawyer who can help you advocate your rights and interests in these custody matters (both during your divorce and in the future if modifications are needed).
Q – Are there military regulations that can impact Colorado military divorce cases?
A – Yes. Although the military sees divorce as being primarily a civilian issue to be worked out by civilian courts, there are some military regulations pertaining to divorcing couples when those couples live on-base (as, naturally, on-base living situations can be disrupted by divorce).
In particular, just some of the military regulations that you may need to be aware of if you live on-base and are about to initiate a Colorado military divorce are the following:
- The member of the military can be required to vacate the on-base marital home and live in the barracks, and this individual will NOT legally be allowed to kick the non-military member out of the house.
- The spouse who is not a member of the military may stay in the on-base marital home for a limited amount of time (typically about 30 days).
There are other military regulations that can impact people living on base, so it’s best to consult with a trusted divorce attorney to find out more about your rights and entitlements if you are ready to move forward with a Colorado military divorce and you are living on base.
Q – Do I need a lawyer to help me with my Colorado military divorce?
A – You do if you are serious about successfully resolving your Colorado military divorce. The fact of the matter is that divorce – both civilian and Colorado military divorce – can be complicated, and having a skilled military divorce lawyer on your side can be essential to:
- Protecting your interests through divorce
- Not making unfavorable compromises or gifts in your divorce
