There are many military servicemembers in Illinois and Missouri, and they are obviously just as interested as are other military members serving throughout the country and abroad with family law matters that concern them.
Military divorce is one of those matters, with divorce for servicemembers often being more subjected to strains than is the case for civilian couples. In the military, one spouse is often working at a location far removed from his or her family. Aside from the obvious stresses that can add to a marriage, it can also render things like child custody and child support flatly problematic following a marital dissolution.
A recent high-profile military case involving a Navy sailor and his daughter amply bears that out.
