Federal law protects military members in terms of how and when they can be served with a divorce petition, how much of their salary can go to child support and alimony and whether their military retirement pensions can be divided as marital property. Hawaii instituted a law in 2010 that protects service members from having deployment considered as a strike against them in custody and visitation disputes, as well as expediting cases for service members who are about to be deployed.
