Are You Pursuing A Military Divorce In New Hampshire?
Divorce is never easy, but when a member of the military is getting a divorce, already complicated matters become even more complex. For example, under the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act, 50 UCS section 521, and at the discretion of a New Hampshire court, a divorce proceeding can be postponed for the entire time an active service member is on duty.

Property Division Laws For Military Members
Property division is another area in which military divorce differs from civilian divorce. The Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (USFSPA) governs how military retirement benefits are calculated and divided upon divorce. Federal law requires at least 10 years of marriage, while the member has been on active duty, for the spouse to be entitled to a portion of the member’s military retirement benefits.
