Military divorce involves many of the same issues addressed in a civilian divorce in Illinois, including child custody (parental responsibility), child support, alimony and the division of marital property. These issues are often more complicated for military families, however, because one spouse — or both — may be on active duty and stationed in another state or out of the country. There are also complications involving the calculation of military income, dividing future military pensions and allocating military benefits among spouses that must be addressed.
