A military divorce simply means that at least one of the parties to the married is a active member of the military.  Active duty members of the military (or their spouses) may file in Alberta if they have been stationed in Alberta for six months or were residents of Alberta when they entered active duty.

A divorce involving a party who is in the military is basically the same as a civilian divorce, but can include some additional issues.  For instance, the Pension Benefits Division Act is legislation which decides on  the division of a Canadian service member's pension with his or her spouse.  In addition, the support of the parties minor child can be or spousal support can be paid pursuant to the legislation known as The Garnishment, Attachment and Pension Diversion Act, which involves having part of a military pension being used to pay for child support or spousal support.
