As with any divorce, the length of time it takes to complete the military divorce process varies depending on the circumstances of your case. The process can be lengthy and complex. If the military service member is currently assigned to a permanent duty station outside the United States or is serving in a remote area outside the country, the divorce processes may take considerably longer. A default judgment cannot be entered against a respondent in active military service unless the military member waives his or her rights. Therefore, a dissolution will not proceed in a military divorce case even if the respondent fails to respond.
If you are considering a divorce, it is essential to seek the help of our experienced military divorce attorneys who can guide you through the process and ensure that your rights are protected. Schedule your free consultation in San Diego today.
