What are special considerations for custody battles over military relocation?


Answer by  eyeguy (3760)

one thing which is often over looked is that if the military member is transfered to certain countries throughout the world it directly effects their contact with the child. For instance you may enter several countries with your child , without the other parent, however when it comes time to leave you may not be allowed to cross the border

yes there are, one thing to keep in mind that in order to qualify for family housing on post children must reside with the military parent at least six months and 1 day. There are often situations and assignment in the military that make this impossible making shared custody hard.

Some special considerations for custody battles involving military relocation may range from travel agreements between you and and other parent, to if you are on active duty or not.


Answer by  Holly81 (98)

Go ask JAG on a military post. Generally the parent who is non military is given custody and the parent who is active duty gets the shaft. Because of deployments, most courts tend to just give the kid to the non military parent, so get a really good care plan going if you want to win and you are military.

Whether or not the person in the military will be going overseas to fight, special needs of the child which they wouldn't receive on a military base, etc.
