Florida (Vocus/PRWEB) February 22, 2011
DivorceYes.com, an online legal service launched by Florida divorce lawyer Jeff Miller and Miller Law Associates, announced recently that their service was now available for military divorce cases. The law firm has handled a number of military divorce cases, and they understand the unique laws surrounding these cases.
“To obtain a divorce in Florida, either the husband or the wife must reside 6 months in the state before the filing of the petition,” explains Florida divorce lawyer Jeff Miller. “For servicemen and women who are stationed in Florida or those who are deployed, the law has a number of provisions to establish residency. We handle these cases on a regular basis and understand what’s required to file for divorce.”
If an active military member has been stationed in Florida for the last 6 months, he or she meets the state’s residence requirement, regardless of whether or not their home state is Florida. Likewise, if someone who has lived in Florida for at least 6 months is deployed to another state or country, he or she can still claim Florida as his/her home state with the intent to return to Florida after discharge.
"So long as the residency requirement is met, an active U.S. military service member can obtain a Florida divorce," says Miller. "Of course, the residence requirement need only be established for one of the spouses."
There are also special rules for dividing military pensions, as well as laws set up to protect active duty military members from being held in default for failing to respond to a divorce action.
