Does it make sense for you to keep your marital home?

No two marriages are exactly alike, so it is perhaps unsurprising that no two divorces are exactly alike either. Some couples divorce peacefully, while others navigate complex, contested divorce processes. Some former spouses maintain contact with each other post-divorce, others do not. And while some individuals cannot wait to leave their marital residences, others remain deeply attached to the houses they call home.

Military divorce has unique issues and concerns

When an important relationship like marriage reaches its conclusion, it is naturally a sad and difficult time for spouses. When couples decide to divorce, they are usually faced with common issues like how to divide property, custody arrangements and child support. However, when the divorcing couple includes a member of the military, there are additional issues that must be resolved. A military divorce may need a different approach than divorce between civilian spouses.

Commandments of Family Law

  1. The only truth your children need to know is that you both love them unconditionally, and that this isn't their fault.
  2. Take the high road — everyone wins when you do what's best for your kids.
  3. Negotiate but don't capitulate — if you are being pushed toward something detrimental for your children, stand your ground.
  4. You can only control yourself and how you respond. Don't engage.
  5. Do set up rules and responsibilities. Kids feel better when routine is continued.
  6. You are still their parent — don't be afraid to be one.
  7. Disneyland is in California, not in your home. Don't set up unreasonable expectations.
  8. It is not their job to take care of you. Repeat that to them. Often.
  9. Yelling is for sports — not court. Good lawyers strongly advocate without being disrespectful to opposing parties.
  10. Fair is a place you go to get cheese curds. Aside from that, nothing in life is fair.
