Handling divorce while in the military

Military members in Alaska may wonder how their enlistment can affect decisions like marriage and divorce. When a military couple decides to end their marriage, they are legally the same as other U.S. couples. However, there are some factors that members of the armed forces may want to keep in mind when they reach the end of their marriage.

One argument is that children should have the opportunity to know their fathers. Another reason is that it establishes a father's legal obligation to pay child support. Establishing paternity also makes a child eligible for various benefits, such as Social Security or inheritances. Finally, it may help the child to learn about any genetic medical conditions that could arise.
