Can I file for divorce in Florida while my spouse is stationed with the military in another country?
While your spouse is stationed in another country, and is in active duty, it’s going to be very hard for you to initiate the divorce and get it started and completed. What’s going to happen is once you file for the divorce proceeding, you’re going to have to wait for your spouse to come back. There are federal laws that protect people in the military. The best thing to do is consult with an attorney and maybe try to settle with your partner before they are deployed for active duty.
