This involves determining what property is considered "separate" and what property is considered "marital." It is important to be aware that different rules apply when it comes to dividing certain benefits in military divorces. Furthermore, when a couple has children, the divorcing individuals will need to make important decisions concerning child support and child custody, which determine how the children will be cared for and financially supported by each parent.
