Military Divorce Laws in Texas
Military service members and their spouses must ensure their divorce is conducted according to state and federal laws.

Service Members Civil Relief Act
Federal laws exist to protect members of the armed forces from being held in default for failing to respond to divorce petitions.
According to the Service Members Civil Relief Act, a military divorce may be postponed:

- Up to 60 days after a military member returns from active duty
Active duty service members may choose to waive these protections if they desire to continue with the divorce proceedings once they are filed.
