Creating a parenting plan for divorced military members

There are many military members living in the Dayton area. With the proximity of the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, many have connections to the military. As is the case with civilian marriages, not all military marriages last forever. When a military couple is going through the military divorce process, child custody, visitation and child support often come up.

Military members going through a divorce often have unique needs, especially with parenting arrangements. When one or even both parents are deployed for months at a time, a parenting agreement can be tricky. A military parenting plan reflects the unique situations that military parents face. Military parenting plans are like a typical parenting plan with a judge looking to make sure the children are being cared for in their best interest. But, the plan also includes any topics related to military service, such as creating a temporary parenting plan when one parent is deployed, visitation planned around military leaves, details on using military travel, and restoring custody rights when a parent returns from deployment.

Military members considering divorce may want to speak with an attorney who has experience in military divorces. An attorney understands the complexity these situations can bring to an already complex divorce. When children are involved, it is important that their best interests are being protected as well.

A military divorce needs to be carefully planned to take into account the unique needs military members face. Creating a parenting plan that works for the parents and the children is one step in helping a family move forward.
