San Marcos Military Divorce FAQ’s
Where to File for Divorce and Child Custody as a Military Service Member?
Military families often reside in various global locations, adding layers of complexity when choosing where to file for divorce. If you’re uncertain about filing in the San Marcos area or beyond, we’re here to help. Allow our San Marcos military divorce experts at Soyars & Morgan Law to navigate you through these jurisdictional intricacies.
Eligibility for Military Divorce in San Marcos, Texas?
Military members may qualify for divorce in San Marcos, Texas under specific conditions:
TEXAS RESIDENT OR SPOUSE OVERSEAS. Time spent outside Texas still counts towards state and county residency if you or your spouse are serving in the U.S. military or other federal services.
NON-TEXAS RESIDENT STATIONED IN TEXAS. If you or your spouse are serving and have been based in Texas for at least six months, and in a county in the San Marcos area for a minimum of 90 days, you meet the requirements as a Texas resident and that county for divorce proceedings.
Interim Spousal Support in San Marcos?
Each military branch mandates financial support for the civilian spouse when living apart. The amount varies depending on child custody arrangements and the specific military branch you’re in.
Continuation of Health Benefits?
Civilian spouses may continue their health insurance for up to a year post-divorce or until remarriage in certain cases. Specifically, if your marriage and service both span at least 20 years, with an overlap of at least 20 years, the civilian spouse can keep their health benefits after divorce. Importantly, children generally maintain their health insurance coverage after the divorce is finalized.
Child Custody and Visitation in San Marcos?
A distinctive feature for deployed service members is the ability to delegate their visitation rights to a family member of choice. The current visitation schedule stays the same; it’s simply executed by the chosen family member. Ensure that these details are clearly laid out in your final court order. For tailored guidance in San Marcos, contact our military divorce experts at Soyars & Morgan Law.
Can Military Members Secure Child Custody in San Marcos?
Certainly. Like civilian parents, service members can also obtain custody of their children. However, due to the unique circumstances surrounding military life, some modifications might be necessary to cater to the best interests of the child(ren).
What if I’m Deployed and Served with Divorce or Custody Papers?
No need to worry! We can legally request a temporary continuance to postpone the proceedings as we prepare your case. Immediately reach out to Soyars & Morgan Law in San Marcos so our specialized military divorce team can arrange the continuance and develop an optimal plan for your family.
Interpreting Geographic Restriction Language
In many final divorce or child custody orders, you’ll find clauses regarding geographic restrictions that require the primary custodial parent to stay within certain limits (e.g., Hays County or the State of Texas). Whether you’re the military member or civilian spouse, it’s crucial to ensure the court doesn’t include a geographic restriction that impedes your visitation rights. This is especially important if you’re at your “final duty station,” as it could limit the other parent to that particular area.
