I’ve heard Foreign Divorces are much cheaper and easier. Why wouldn't someone in the military take advantage of this option?

Why not foreign divorce?

You can get divorces quickly in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, among other places. Getting a divorce where you or your spouse have not established domicile will cost you much more when you have to hire a lawyer to make your divorce legal. Per the U.S. Supreme Court, only a divorce granted in the state which one or both individuals have established legal residence has the jurisdiction to issue such a decree.  You wouldn't want to be in the position of committing bigamy after getting re-married because your first marriage wasn't properly ended. I can assist you with a legal Virginia divorce decree while protecting your military benefits.
