The divorce process is generally the same for civilians and Marines as divorces must be filed in state courts because neither military or federal courts have legal authority, or jurisdiction, to decide divorce cases. There is one main difference. If a service member's spouse files for divorce while he is deployed, he may be able to have the case postponed until he returns. If your daughter is a resident of FL now, she can file for divorce there.
