How are Military Divorces Different in Nebraska?

Military divorces bring forth a set of unique challenges that require specialized attention. Here are some of the distinctive aspects that set military divorces apart:

  • Military Pensions & Retirement: Understanding the intricacies of dividing military pensions and retirement benefits, ensuring a fair and equitable resolution.
  • Disposition of Disability Monies: Navigating the legal landscape surrounding disability benefits, addressing questions about how these funds are treated during divorce proceedings.

  • Child Support & Parenting Time: Advocating for fair outcomes in matters involving children, emphasizing the best interests of the child and maintaining stable parenting arrangements.

Base Privileges When Dealing with Divorce

Navigating the intricacies of military divorce extends beyond legal proceedings and often includes concerns about the preservation of base privileges. Even after a divorce, a former military spouse may still be eligible for commissary and exchange privileges. We shed light on a pivotal factor known as the 20/20/20 rule, which plays a significant role in determining eligibility for these privileges even after the dissolution of marriage.

Understanding the 20/20/20 Rule

The 20/20/20 rule serves as a cornerstone in securing post-divorce base privileges. To qualify, the former military spouse must meet the following essential criteria:

  1. Married for at least 20 Years: The longevity of the marriage is a key factor, requiring a minimum duration of two decades.
  1. Military Member Served for 20 Years or More: The active-duty service of the military member must extend to at least two decades.
  1. Marriage Overlapped Military Service for at Least 20 Years: There should be a substantial overlap between the duration of the marriage and the military member's period of service, lasting for a minimum of 20 years.

Applicable Military Regulations

In the intricate realm of military divorces, a profound understanding of relevant regulations is paramount.
