Special Rules for Military Divorce Proceedings in New York

If you or your spouse is in the military, there are special rules that govern your divorce proceedings. For example, there are federal laws put in place that protect soldiers who are deployed from being served divorce papers. This means that soldiers who are on active duty are legally protected from being held in default if they do not respond to a divorce action.

Additional examples of how military divorces differ from civilian divorces include:

  • Both spouses must reside in or be stationed in the state if applying for a military divorce in New York
  • A service member cannot be ordered to pay more than 60% of his or her income and allowances in combined child support and spousal maintenance
  • A spouse of a former of a service member is not entitled to share his or her spouse's retirement benefits unless they were married for a minimum of 10 years during active duty
  • Certain types of retirement benefits such as military disability, VA disability, and special combat-related compensation are not subject to division upon divorce

  • Robert and his firm were professional effective and did not take any “BS” from the opposite side.

    “I hired Robert Montefusco not one time but two times to represent me for custody of my child Each time I was represented with a favorable outcome. Robert and his firm were professional effective and did not take any “BS” from the opposite side. In a biased court system where the fathers are immediately the underdog , Robert was able to get me a better outcome than most fathers get. For that I highly recommend the Montefusco Law firm.”
